Endometrial epithelial metaplasia is described as transition of the normal endometrial epithelial cells by benign complex proliferation of cells. These metaplastic changes have been frequently reported as associated changes in endometrial hyperplasia and adenocarcinoma more than non-neoplastic samples and are also known to appear atypical occasionally, and hence can be a diagnostic challenge. Eosinophilic cell change is one of the most frequently encountered endometrial metaplasias. Eosinophilic syncytial change is a form of eosinophilic endometrial metaplasia, and is known to mimic endometrial serous carcinoma, again posing a diagnostic challenge. In this article, we have presented a case of endometrial eosinophilic metaplasia in a 47-year-old patient along with a brief discussion on immunohistochemical characteristics of eosinophilic syncytial change that could help pathologists to differentiate them from malignancies in challenging scenarios.
