Hysteroscopy is an invasive diagnostic tool that has transformed the management of gynecological conditions over the past century. The first hysteroscopy is credited to Pantaleoni in 1869, and although at that stage very elementary, it provided the foundation for what has become a vital tool to any gynecologist. Improvements in the utility of the hysteroscope and refinements in fiber-optic technology have led to the acknowledgment of hysteroscopy as the “gold standard” investigation of uterine pathology.
