OBJECTIVE To review the histogenesis of peritoneal, ovarian, and rectovaginal endometriotic lesions. DESIGN The comparison of morphologic, morphometric, and histochemical data observed in each type of lesion. SETTING A university hospital department of gynecology. PATIENT(S) Patients complaining of infertility or pelvic pain with laparoscopically proved endometriosis. INTERVENTION(S) Laparoscopy was performed, and biopsy specimens from the endometriotic lesions were histologically… Expand
Deep endometriosis: definition, pathogenesis, and clinical management.
TLDR
Peritoneal, ovarian, and deep endometriosis may be diverse manifestations of a disease with a single origin (i.e., regurgitated endometrium). Expand
Deep nodular endometriosis : from observational studies to experimental model
TLDR
This study reported the largest clinical series of surgical removal of type III deep endometriotic nodules and demonstrated that deep nodular lesions may be neuroattractive through the action of NGF, and evidences clear similarities between the baboon model and spontaneous disease observed in humans. Expand
Endometriosis: pathogenesis and treatment
TLDR
Endometriosis is estrogen-dependent, manifests during reproductive years and is associated with pain and infertility, while lesion eradication is considered a fertility-enhancing procedure, the benefit on reproductive performance is moderate. Expand
Endometriotic lesions
Endometriosis is a complex gynaecological condition affecting women of reproductive age. It is characterised by the presence of lesions containing endometrial glands and stroma outside the uterus.Expand
12 Laparoscopy for Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis
Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial like stroma and glands outside the uterine cavity (Giudice and Kao, 2004). Laparoscopy has been recognized as the gold standard forExpand
Laparoscopy for Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis
TLDR
There are very few good quality studies in the literature regarding the role of laparoscopy in the diagnosis of endometriosis, and there is a substantial delay in endometRIosis diagnosis which inevitably has negative effect on quality of life and perception of her own health, fertility and even sexual life. Expand
Molecular basis of endometriosis.
TLDR
A better understanding of the molecular basis of endometriosis will aid in identification of molecular markers and novel drug targets in the future, providing better diagnostics and treatment. Expand
Laparoscopic Management of Peritoneal Endometriosis, Endometriotic Cysts, and Rectovaginal Adenomyosis
TLDR
Peritoneal endometiosis, ovarian endometriosis, and rectovaginal adenomyotic nodules must be considered as three separate entities with different pathogeneses that require a different therapeutic approach. Expand
Endometriosis: A Disease That Remains Enigmatic
TLDR
The most controversial and enigmatic aspects of endometriosis are reviewed, including its enigmatic etiopathogenesis, which appears to represent a continuum of individual presentations and progressions. Expand
Endometrioma and Infertility: Principles and Techniques of Management
TLDR
Although the ovaries are the commonest sites of endometriomas, there are numerous reports of extra-gonadal chocolate cysts in distant locations like the umbilicus, brain, liver and other sites, which do not, however, have direct effects on infertility. Expand

Peritoneal endometriosis and "endometriotic" nodules of the rectovaginal septum are two different entities.
TLDR
The evaluation suggested that the stroma is not mandatory for the invasion of glandular epithelium in the rectovaginal nodule, which is, like a adenomyoma, a circumscribed nodular aggregate of smooth muscle and glandular elements. Expand
Stereometric evaluation of peritoneal endometriosis and endometriotic nodules of the rectovaginal septum.
TLDR
It is suggested that the rectovaginal adenomyotic nodule is a specific disease, different from peritoneal endometriosis, not the consequence of 'deep infiltrating' endometRIosis but can probably develop from Mullerian rests present in the rectvaginal septum. Expand
Peritoneal, Ovarian and Recto-Vaginal Endometriosis: The Identification of Three Separate Diseases
This is a color-illustrated advanced clinical monograph that analyzes and compares the three forms of endometriosis: peritoneal, ovarian, and rectovaginal. Three core chapters cover theExpand
Clinical and histologic classification of endometriomas. Implications for a mechanism of pathogenesis.
TLDR
The findings led to the conclusion that superficial ovarian endometriosis is similar to endometRIosis in extra-ovarian sites in that the formation of superficial cysts is limited in size by fibrosis and scarring. Expand
Morphometric study of the stromal vascularization in peritoneal endometriosis.
TLDR
It is proved that the "activity" of peritoneal endometriosis is related to the vascularity, and this concept must be considered in the further discussion of American Fertility Society Endometiosis Classification. Expand
Deep endometriosis: a consequence of infiltration or retraction or possibly adenomyosis externa?
TLDR
Three subtypes of deep endometriosis can be distinguished and Type III, which is a spherical nodule located in the recto vaginal septum is the most severe and largest lesion. Expand
Endometriosis and Mullerian Anomalies
TLDR
Data support the concept that an increase in retrograde menstruation will increase the likelihood of endometriosis. Expand
Rectovaginal septum, endometriosis or adenomyosis: laparoscopic management in a series of 231 patients.
TLDR
A series of 231 cases of deep-infiltrating endometriosis of the rectovaginal septum is presented and it is suggested that this form of disease must be considered as a specific disease which originates from the Mullerian rests present in the rectvaginalSeptum and be called 'rectovaginals adenomyosis'.

LAPAROSCOPIC TREATMENT OF ENDOMETRIOSIS
Adequate management of endometriosis by laparoscopy included 3 steps: a laparoscopic diagnosis with peritoneal fluid sampling for cytologic examination and biopsies of implants and of peritoneum toExpand

TLDR
Ovarioscopy is proposed as a useful tool to differentiate in doubtful cases between a hemorrhagic functional and an endometriotic cyst and to select the sites for biopsies. Expand
