ENDOMETRIOSIS

Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent growth of extrauterine endometrial-like tissue that induces a chronic inflammatory response.

Main clinical features include chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia and infertility.

Patients with endometriosis may also be completely asymptomatic.

Goals of treatment are decreasing pain, enhancing fertility, and preventing progression or recurrence.
