Endometriosis is a progressive debilitating disease affecting the physical, social and  psychological aspects of normal life quality in nearly 1 of 7 women of reproductive  
age. Endometriosis is considered to be an enigmatic disease owing to the lack of 

specific set of symptoms, poorly understood pathogenesis, complexity in diagnosis  
and limited therapeutic options available for management of the disorder. The last 
three decades we have witnessed a significant volume of research related to 
endometriosis. We felt the need to bring together contributions of experts working on 
pathophysiology, diagnosis and therapeutic aspects of endometriosis. We genuinely 
hope that the readers will enjoy reading these informative articles contributed by 
eminent clinicians and scientists. We, as editors, would sincerely feel rewarded if the 
readers put to use the contents of the book to alleviate the pain and misery of women 
suffering from endometriosis, a disease which still remains a challenge.

We sincerely appreciate the valuable contributions of all the authors who have put in 
considerable effort to make the book a success. We are grateful to Dr. Ashalatha Ganesh 
for providing her expert opinion and valuable suggestions. We are most thankful to 
InTech publisher for providing us with an opportunity to edit a book of such great 
clinical relevance. Finally, our sincere thanks to Bojan Rafaj, Publishing Process Manager 
for the excellent support extended to us throughout the editing process.
