Laparoscopic management of a small bowel obstruction caused by an endometriotic focus

887-888

Beatriz Laiz Díez, Alejandro García Muñoz-Najar, Manuel Durán Poveda,

Endometriosis is the presence of extra-uterine endometrial tissue and affects 6-10% of fertile women. In 3-37% of the cases it affects the gastrointestinal tract being the ileal location extremely infrequent. Symptoms are nonspecific, debuting as intestinal obstruction in 7-23% of cases. The definitive diagnosis is anatomopathological and the treatment in these cases of acute abdomen is surgery. We attach the present case due to its rarity, it is a young asymptomatic woman who debuts with a picture of intestinal obstruction that is treated by intestinal resection via laparoscopy confirming the endometriosis etiology.
