They are estimated to be present in up to 70% of women of reproductive age [1], with a higher incidence in obese women and those of African American descent, and when symptomatic, a frequent indication for gynecologic surgery.

ConclusionModerate-to-severe endometriosis was more common in women with East or South East Asian ethnicity in our tertiary referral center.
