The article focuses on the significance of imaging in endometriosis diagnosis. The findings are typical of ovarian endometrioma and suspicious for endometriosis of bowel wall. It was found out that imaging in endometriosis is limited since small implants are usually undetectable with ultrasound and difficult to identify with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is noted that endometriosis of the bowel often involves the sigmoid and rectosigmoid, though it is an uncommon cause of obstruction.
