  • Preferred Examination: Initial workup begins with a history and physical examination. These can be nonspecific but occasionally, tender nodular masses can be palpated on pelvic examination, representing fibrotic implants in the cul-de-sac.[web.archive.org]
  • […] background, we evaluated the demographic variables, clinical presentation and intraoperative findings of twenty three consecutive infertile women with intraoperative diagnosis of adenomyosis, having been misdiagnosed as leiomyomata during infertility workup[pjms.com.pk]
Hyperprolactinemia
  • Treatment with intrauterine pituitary grafting, which causes a hyperprolactinemia; with progesterone alone; or with progesterone and estrogen induces adenomyosis in mice ( 6 – 8 ).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • However, clinicians rarely consider adenomyosis as an independent etiology in the differential diagnosis of uterine disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The etiology of AS is rarely known and seems to be multifactorial [ 19 ]. Several endoscopic dilatation techniques can be used [ 20 ] to treat AS.[karger.com]
