Endometriosis is a common gynecological condition affecting women of reproductive age. It has been linked with higher rates of depression and anxiety in small, cross-sectional, and clinical studies. Other studies have reported that women with endometriosis have increased risk of bipolar disorder. These reports suggest that psychiatric disorders might be more common among women with endometriosis, contributing to increased burden of mental ill-health in this population of women. However, this hypothesis has not been adequately studied

Authors: Lee D, Kim SK, Lee JR, Jee BC Abstract Endometriosis is a common inflammatory disease in women of reproductive age and is one of the major causes of infertility. Endometriosis causes a sustained reduction of ovarian reserve through both physical mechanisms and inflammatory reactions, which result in the production of reactive oxygen species and tissue fibrosis. The severity of endometriosis is related to ovarian reserve. With regard to infertility treatment, medical therapy as a neoadjuvant or adjuvant to surgical therapy has no definite beneficial effect. Surgical treatment of endometriosis can lead to ov...

A 38-year-old nulligravid female with a longstanding history of severe endometriosis requiring four previous excisional procedures, including ileocecal resection and reanastomosis, developed severe epigastric and right upper quadrant pain without inciting incident. Abdominal upright film revealed multiple dilated small bowel loops with air/fluid levels.  Conservative management with bowel decompression was initiated. CT scan two days later demonstrated dilated loops of small bowel consistent with a small-bowel obstruction with a transition point at the ileocecal junction near the anastomotic line from her previous resection.

We present an image of the first woman to develop endometriosis of the vulva following vaginal hysterectomy. Most cases develop in episiotomies following vaginal birth [1]. The image is of the vulva post successful medical treatment of her endometriosis (Figure 1). The biopsy site is marked with an arrow and she was not bleeding at the time of the photograph.

Authors: Abstract Chronic pelvic pain is a common, burdensome, and costly condition that disproportionately affects women. Diagnosis and initial management of chronic pelvic pain in women are within the scope of practice of specialists in obstetrics and gynecology. The challenging complexity of chronic pelvic pain care can be addressed by increased visit time using appropriate coding modifiers, as well as identification of multidisciplinary team members within the practice or by facilitated referral. This Practice Bulletin addresses the diagnosis and management of chronic pelvic pain that is not completely explai...

Here we aimed to study the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive role of sulforaphane on sciatic nerve endometriosis. The sciatic nerve endometriosis rat model was constructed by autologous implantation of uterine tissue. Sulforaphane was administered intraperitoneally at the dose of 5, 15, 30 and 60 mg/kg/day for 28 days. Behavioral testing was performed at day 7, 14, 21 and 28. At day 2...

Video-assisted thoracic surgery was performed for definitive diagnosis and pneumothorax treatment. Bluish diaphragmatic spots and three lung bullae were noted. A lung fistula was observed in one of the bullae, and the diaphragmatic lesion and bullae were resected. The bulla with air leakage and the diaphragmatic lesion were ...
