Abstract

Adenomyosis is a frequent entity, with difficult diagnosis, often obtained by pathological analysis performed after hysterectomy. This condition can cause abnormal uterine bleeding and dysmenorrhea, frequent reasons for consultation and hysterectomy. The development of ultrasonographic and magnetic resonance imaging techniques allow preoperative diagnosis. They also permit the use of hysteroscopic techniques for conservative uterine surgery, and have brought diagnosis and management of this disease to the front of the scene. This article reviews the pathological description of the disease, its epidemiology, clinical presentations, useful and necessary explorations, etiopathogeny and available therapies.
