Endometriosis and Adenomyosis

 This excellent presentation by Yuming Wu, author of the book 'Infertility and Reproductive Gynaecology' takes an in depth look into Endometriosis and Adenomyosis. 

Endometriosis is a disorder in which the endometrium, the interior lining of the uterus, is found in locations outside the uterine cavity, causing inflammation, adhesions and cysts. Endometriosis can disrupt the anatomic, hormonal and immunologic environment, causing a variety of clinical symptoms and signs such as pelvic pain, dysmenorrhoea, abdominal masses, ovarian cysts and infertility.

Adenomyosis is characterised by the abnormal presence of endometrial tissue within the myometrium – in contrast to endometriosis where endometrial tissue is found entirely outside the uterus. The two conditions are often encountered together although they can occur independently.
