abstract

  • Sixty-five cases of pulmonary endometriosis are reviewed for characteristics of age, parity, prior surgery, prior endometriosis, location of pulmonary disease, and documentation of disease. Two categories of pulmonary endometriosis are defined: 1) pleural and 2) parenchymal. Age, history of pelvic endometriosis, and location of disease were found to be significantly different between the 2 groups. © 1981 by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
