Endometriosis is a frequent cause of chronic pelvic pain in women of childbearing age, resulting in a significant deterioration in their quality of life. Inflammation can affect the reproductive organs, rectum and bladder. Medical treatment is considered the first line of management, although it can prove insufficient in many cases. Intestinal endometriosis occurs in approximately 5-12% of cases, with the rectosigmoid junction being the most common place of involvement (65%), followed by the ileocecal valve (20%) and rectum (15%).
