Methods. The authors evaluated the incidence of abortion in a selected group of 63 patients with endometriosis and compared it to that found in a control group of patients matched for age (18-40 years) without endometriosic lesions or other systemic pathologies. The patients with endometriosic lesions included in the study conformed to a number of criteria (laparoscopic diagnosis of endometriosis, moderate endometriosis according to the AFS classification, absence of anatomic and genetic alterations in personal medical history and instrumental tests, not receiving medical therapy for treatment of endometriosis, no earlier provoked abortion).
Results and conclusions. Two findings emerged from the two groups: the precocious nature of abortion in the group with endometriosis (5 weeks and 6 days on average compared to 8 weeks and 6 days in the control group) and the higher incidence of abortion in the same group (49.2% compared to 15.8% in the control group).
