Endometriosis is a chronic systemic disease, which influence negatively the quality of life of affected women and responsible for infertility and chronic pelvic pain. Pathophysiology of the disease is still enigmatic, but insufficient immune surveillance may play a role in it. Peripheral natural immune cell function is rarely examined. The aim of the study was to examine phagocyte function of peripheral neutrophil granulocytes and monocytes, whether this phagocytic activity is affected by the presence or removal of endometriotic lesions in women with endometriosis.
