Endometriosis is a gynaecological condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb, grows in other areas of the body, most commonly on the ovaries. Part of the Current Practice in Obstetrics and Gynecology series, this book discusses the recent advances and thinking in endometriosis. Beginning with an introduction to the epidemiology and etiopathology of the disease, the following chapters describe the effects of endometriosis on genetics and fertility, as well as surgical and non surgical treatment, adenomyosis, recurrence and early pregnancy loss.
