In view of all the findings and previous CT scan, she was counselled for few options of surgical management which either conservative surgery or total removal of her reproductive organ and affected tissues as there is high chances of recurrence.

Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of cells (endometrial cells) similar to those that form the inside of the uterus, but in a location outside of the uterus

Ovary is the commonest site Spread is due to retrograde and lymphatic spread Size vary from spots to large chocolate cyst Inflammatory response can cause adhesions

Other Sites
Visceral peritoneum- scarring Anterior bladder adhesion Posterior dense adhesion POD obliteration Symptoms

Dyspareunia Dyschesia Alteration in bowel and bladder habits

Other Sites
Parietal peritoneum Infiltration of uterosacral ligament POD Rectovaginal septum Uterus becomes fixed and retroverted Symptom Deep dyspareunia

Other Sites

Involvement of anterior rectal wall and upper rectum Cyclical rectal bleeding (Haematochezia) Ileum,appendix and caecum may be involved- may lead to intestinal obstruction

Other sites
Rarely, endometriosis implants can occur outside the pelvis, on the liver, in old surgery scars, and even in or around the lung or brain.



The commonest symptom is dysmenorrhoea.The pain is very severe just prior to the period, last throughout the period and the pain will cease only at the end of period Chronic pelvic pain due to the involvement of peripheral spinal nerves

3. Deep Dyspareunia due to

Scarring of uterosacral ligaments Nodularity in rectovaginal septum Obliteration of pouch of Douglus Retroversion of uterus


Rare symptoms of endometriosis include

Chest pain or coughing of blood due to endometriosis in the lungs Headache and fits due to endometriosis in the brain.



Dysmenorrhoea Dyspareunia Pelvic pain Menstrual irregularities Subfertility Other symtpoms depend on sites


examination - painful Bluish nodule in the posterior vaginal wall If chocolate cyst- adnexal mass

Ultrasound examination

Chocolate cyst in the ovary Endometriosis in vaginal and bladder areas ruling out other pelvic diseases

MRI may be helpful to see the deposits in other sites- rectal involvement


Laparoscopy is the gold standard of diagnosing endometriosis

a direct visual inspection inside of the pelvis and abdomen


Medical treatment

Combined OCP

Suppress hypothalamic ovarian axis Prevents withdrawal bleeds and retrograde menstruation relief pain


Medroxyprogesterone acetate Either in the form of oral tablets or Depo Provera injection Shedding of endometrium Depo provera is easy to administer and more effective

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs

(such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium) are commonly prescribed to help relieve pelvic pain and menstrual cramping. These pain-relieving medications have no effect on the endometrial implants.


Danazol is a synthetic drug that creates a low estrogen hormonal environment by interfering with ovulation and ovarian production of estrogen. s/e : weight gain, androgenic features


works in much the same way as danazol with similar, but milder, side effects.

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues (GnRH analogues)

relieve pain and reduce the size of endometriosis implants. menstrual periods stop, mimicking menopause. Nasal and injection forms of GnRH agonists are available. The side effects are a result of the lack of estrogen, and include:hot flashes, vaginal dryness and osteopenia

Aromatase inhibitors

anastrozole and letrozole interrupting local estrogen formation within the endometriosis implants themselves. inhibit estrogen production in the ovary, brain, and other sources, such as adipose tissue. S/E :significant bone loss

Surgical treatment

Conservative surgery

for patient who want to have child Options : Tubal flushing Ablation of endometriotic lesion with adhesiolysis Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy (if cyst > 4cm)

Kissing ovaries

for women with very severe symptoms not responded to medical treatment or conservative operations. Total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salphingo-oophorectomy
