Abstract

This work aimed to analyze the effect of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) in young women. Twenty-seven cases of patients (below 38-years-old) diagnosed with DIE and admitted to the present hospital from January 2008 to July 2014 were reviewed, and their pre- and postoperative states of illness were summarized. The main preoperative symptoms included dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia, nodule in rectouterine fossa, and reduced level of fertility. All patients underwent surgery (17 laparoscopies and ten laparotomies). Postoperative pathological explanation confirmed DIE in lesions. DIE significantly affects the health of young women.
