Endometriosis is one of the most common gynecological diseases diagnosed in almost 70% of patients with chronic pelvic pain (CPP). However, a quarter of women with pelvic pain is diagnosed with external genital endometriosis (EGE) during laparoscopy. A special group is represented by patients with PP that did not stop after the removal of endometrial foci. The mechanisms of the pathogenesis of the formation of pain syndrome are not completely explored yet. According to several authors, a significant role in the pathogenesis of pelvic pain recurrence after surgical treatment of EGE is played by active neuroangiogenesis, both in ectopic and eutopic endometrium. The aim of the study was to expand the understanding of the pathogenesis of pelvic pain that did not stop (recurrence) after surgical treatment of external genital endometriosis.
