The present study evaluate the histopathologic findings and clinical indications in hysterectomized patients based on sonographic assessments. This study population consisted of all patients who were referred to the Pathology Ward of Imam Reza educational and treatment Center (Kermanshah, Iran) during March 2006 to May 2012. The samples were stained with hematoxylin-eosin after fixation in formalin. 636 cases of hysterectomy were examined. 232 patients (50.7%) underwent salpingo oophorectomy. The most cases of hysterectomy have been performed in multipara women. The most common indications for trans-abdominal hysterectomy were fibroma (in 38.8% of cases), adenomyosis, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and endometrial hyperplasia, respectively. The histopathologic results showed that fortunately benign diseases were the most common findings in hysterectomy cases
