Abstract: Introduction: Hysterectomy is commonest surgical procedure performed in gynaecology worldwide. Clinicopathological audit of hysterectomies can help us define and improve our standard of diagnosis and justification of hysterectomies performed. Methods: This retrospective study involves 101 patients who underwent hysterectomy at MGM Medical College and Hospital Aurangabad. Case records collected from the medical records department were reviewed to collect data of patient sociodemographic characteristics, clinical diagnosis, radiological diagnosis, and histopathological findings. Statistical analysis was subsequently performed to assess the correlation between clinical, radiological and histopathological diagnosis. Results and Conclusion: The Most common age group that underwent hysterectomy was 41 - 50 years (48.5%). Among the patients undergoing hysterectomy, 37.6% were from urban areas and 62.4% were from rural areas. The most common indication for hysterectomy was found to be uterine fibroids (40.6%).
