Endometriosis is characterized by the presence of endometrial glands and stroma in ectopic locations within the peritoneal cavity. More commonly, the lesions can be found on areas such as the cul-de-sac and other pelvic parietal surfaces. Endometrial glands and stroma infiltrating the myometrium characterizes Adenomyosis. Adenomyosis is usually characterized by diffuse foci of endometrial glands scattered throughout the myometrium. Meanwhile, a less common type of adenomyosis, in which the lesio...
