Ureteral endometriosis represents a relatively rare pathologic condition affecting women in reproductive age. The symptoms are mostly non-specific, a fact which demands a high clinical suspicion. The rarity of this entity and the lack of relevant guidelines makes the management of such patients challenging.

Endometriosis Ureteral

La endometriosis ureteral es una enfermedad relativamente rara que afecta a las mujeres en edad reproductiva. Los síntomas son en su mayoría inespecíficos, de modo que se requiere un elevado nivel de sospecha clínica. La rareza de la enfermedad y la ausencia de guías específicas hacen que el abordaje de estas pacientes sea problemático.
