Extensive keratinizing squamous change in endometrium, namely ichthyosis uteri, is an uncommon condition. It is considered a benign lesion but its association with malignancy has been reported in the literature. Here, we present two cases of ichthyosis uteri that were both diagnosed in the curettage material. If widespread squamous epithelium covering the entire endometrial surface is detected in the curettage, an advanced examination should be done because of the possibility of the underlying malignancy association.
