The impact of endometriosis on in vitro fertilization (IVF) has been the subject of numerous publications, although a number of critical issues related to the management of affected patients remain unsolved. Accurate assessment of the effect of this disease on IVF outcome requires an appraisal of the diagnostic limitations, the consequences of surgical and hormonal management of endometriosis and the potential impact of both disease and IVF on feto-maternal well-being. We have addressed all these aspects by attempting an overview of the literature of the last decade and we present an update which may be useful regarding the treatment options of subfertile women seeking pregnancy.
