A case report of endometriosis presenting as an acute small bowel obstruction

CONCLUSION Endometriosis as a differential should be considered with a high index of suspicion in pre-menopausal women, particularly in patients with negligible previous surgical history. There should be a low threshold for early laparoscopy and resection of affected bowel in these patients.

Abstract Endometriosis is a common and challenging condition of reproductive-aged women that carries a high individual and societal cost. The many molecular dissimilarities between endometriosis lesions and eutopic endometrium create difficulties in the development of new drug therapies and treatments. Surgery remains the gold standard for definitive diagnosis, but it must be weighed against the risks of surgical morbidity and potential decreases in ovarian reserve, especially in the case of endometriomas. Safe and effective surgical techniques are discussed within this article for various presentations of endomet...

Adenomyosis (variant diseases of the endometriosis) is still a biggest challenge for both physicians and patients [1 –3]. Common symptoms and signs include an elevated of serum level of CA 125, dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, and infertility [4,5]. Because of poor understanding of pathophysiology of adenomyosis [6], the current treatment strategy might be only limited to symptom treatment, including hormone thera py to induce menopause status, waiting for spontaneous menopause, and the destructive surgery, such as total hysterectomy and/or adenomyomectomy, cytoreduction of adenomyosis.

Let’s face it: managing your period is a hassle. There’s the cramping, the bloating, the bleeding, and the feeling a little cranky. Not to mention the need to remember to have tampons and ibuprofen on hand. There may also be the bad timing of a special occasion or a tropical vacation that complicates things further. But as aggravating as all this may be, for most women it’s just that: an aggravation, a nuisance that’s pretty easily dealt with. But for about one in 10 women, their period, the week leading up to their period, and in some cases their entire month can be filled with severe cramps and pe...

Authors: Ottolina J, Bartiromo L, Viganò P, Makieva S, Schimberni M, Candiani M Abstract Endometriosis is an inflammatory disease affecting 7-10% of women throughout their reproductive life. Few data are available regarding the age at menopause of women affected by this disease. Most of the available evidence, although scanty, would indicate that both ovarian surgery for endometriomas and endometriosis "per se" appear to influence age at menopause. Other factors might interfere with the age at menopause of women affected by endometriosis. The purpose of this review is to examine the age at menopaus...
