Endometriosis of the ileum and the colon complicated bowel obstruction. Two case reports
Croce P., De Giorgi O., Votta P., Zangrandi A., Semeraro G
The authors report two cases of intestinal occlusion, one ileal and the other colic, caused by endometriosis. Both patients underwent surgery. Following a review of data in the literature regarding the frequency, pathogenesis, diagnosis and management, the authors conclude that pre- and intraoperative diagnosis is often impossible in these cases and must be postponed to histological analysis. Full remission was achieved after surgery.
