Multifocal endometriosis: A case report

P. Vercellini, N. Vendola, M. Presti, G. Bolis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Disseminated endometriosis of the urinary, genital and intestinal systems was treated successfully with conservative surgery. We hypothesize that this unusual presentation may have derived from retrograde menstruation, pooling of endometrial cells in the dependent anterior and posterior cul-de-sacs with subsequent passage across the peritoneal mesothelium, and dissemination by clockwise intraabdominal currents.
