The article presents a study which aims to investigate whether serum anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) levels recover within one year following cystectomy for endometriomas. It includes 18 patients who were diagnosed as having uni- or bilateral endometriosis by two or more transvaginal ultrasound examinations and through magnetic resonance imaging. It concludes that the decrease in the ovarian reserve may recover after follicle cohorts regrow and rearrange.

    Pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) is a cause of chronic pelvic pain in women and is defined as pelvic pain lasting for more than six months. The diagnosis of PCS is a challenging task for the gynaecologist. It can be due to many varied causes like endometriosis, adhesions, chronic pelvic...

    The author has systematically reviewed the literature between 1949 and 2005, searching for research related to adenomyosis as well as the diagnosis thereof. Although superior to transabdominal sonography, the transvaginal route has a sensitivity of only 50-87%. MRI is comparable to ultrasound...
