Laparoscopy was performed on 126 women with undiagnosed chronic pelvic pain. Abnormalities were demonstrated in 62.7% of the cases. Endometriosis was present in 32.5% of the women. Laparoscopy is useful in the differential diagnosis of chronic pelvic pain and is indicated when symptoms persist for over 6 months.
