Endometriosis affects 4–10% of reproductive age women, causing pain symptoms and infertility. Endometriosis-related pain severely affects quality of life, impairing working efficiency, social life and sexual function. Although research has improved our knowledge of the genetic and molecular pathways involved in the establishment and progression of endometriosis, the pathogenesis of this condition remains to be fully understood.
Given the growing importance of endometriosis in the clinical practice of gynaecologists, radiologists, colorectal surgeons, urologists and general practitioners, the journal Medicina is launching a Special Issue entitled “Estrogen-Dependent Diseases: Endometriosis” with the aim of gathering accurate and up-to-date scientific information on all aspects of this condition. We are pleased to invite you and your co-workers to submit your original research articles reporting the findings of your basic research studies performed on endometriosis. We also encourage the submission of original manuscripts on the diagnosis of endometriosis and on the treatment of pain and infertility in patients with endometriosis. Furthermore, we would like to invite you to submit review articles aimed at providing a comprehensive overview of the recent advances in the diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatment of endometriosis.
