CANOVAS IVORRA, José Antonio et al. Bladder endometriosis: Case report and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.3, pp.290-292. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objetive: To report a new case of bladder endometriosis and to perform a bibliographic review. Methods: We report the case of a 34-year-old female with the diagnosis of bladder endometriosis treated by transurethral resection and subsequent hormonal therapy with good outcome one year after diagnosis. Results: Treatment with analogs was started after TUR, in conjunction with the Gynecology Department, and maintained six months. The patient remained asymptomatic one year after diagnosis, with a negative cystoscopic study. Conclusions: We emphasize the need of early diagnosis due to the increased morbidity and health-care expenses; also the need of surgical treatment of all urological lesions before any hormonal therapy, mainly ureteral lesions. We finally emphasize that definitive treatment should be performed by the gynecologist.

Keywords : Bladder endometriosis; Transurethral resection of the bladder; Hormonal treatment.
