Daniela Angerame Yela, Lucas Trigo, Helena Giraldo, Marcelo V Mota, Liliana L Andrade, Cristina Laguna Benetti-Pinto


We report two cases of polypoid endometriosis: a 39-year-old woman with menorrhagia and pelvic pain whose ultrasound revealed an intrauterine cystic polypoid mass measuring 4.5 cm which was removed by hysteroscopy, and a 35-year-old woman with menorrhagia whose ultrasound showed a 3.5 cm cystic lesion where resection was not possible by hysteroscopy, and the patient underwent hysterectomy. In both, the histological examination confirmed polypoid endometriosis. Polypoid endometriosis is a rare entity that can be found in several places. Here, two cases of polypoid endometriosis in cervical mucosa are described.
