|CLINICAL HISTORY 3
1 ovary is exhibiting normal architecture, with occasional formation of empty or fluid-filled cysts. No corpora lutea appear to be present.
Second ovary: This ovary exhibits several small corpora lutea and underdeveloped follicles in several stages.
Uterus: Mild endometrial hyperplasia is evident accompanied by a mild to focally moderate plasmacytic lymphocytic infiltrate.
Normal ovarian tissue, bilateral, with focal ovarian cyst formation
Mild generalized endometrial hyperplasia with mild plasmacytic lymphocytic neutrophilic endometritis
No bacteria are seen
Low grade endometritis is identified but morphology does not support pyometra or active a bacterial infection. Some mucosal hyperplasia is evident as well, considered to be incidental. The ovaries were normal, possibly a bit atrophic, but appear to be functional, 1 or 2 corpora lutea are identified on one side. The ovary on the contralateral side did not show any corpora lutea or any tertiary or well-developed follicles.
