Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus — the endometrium — grows outside the uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining the pelvis.

This book is a practical guide to the diagnosis and management of endometriosis.

Divided into 12 sections, the text begins with an overview of the pathogenesis and impacts of the condition, followed by discussion on its diagnosis and staging system.

The following chapters cover therapeutic techniques including pain management and surgery, and recurrent endometriosis. A complete chapter is dedicated to adolescent endometriosis.

The book concludes with discussion on endometriosis-associated infertility, endometriomas, deep infiltrating endometriosis, whereby other organs near the uterus such as the bowel and bladder can also be affected; and adenomyosis.

The comprehensive text is highly illustrated with clinical photographs, diagrams, tables and detailed references to further enhance learning.
