Abstract [en]

Problem: Endometriosis is a very complex disease that profoundly affects the quality of life of many women. Method of study: A review of the relationships between the female immune system and the occurrence and development of endometriosis. Results: Function and dysfunction of the female immune system plays important roles in the initiation and progression of the disease and its relation to infertility and cancer. Conclusions: Owing to obvious associations between endometriosis and the immune system, future treatment strategies might be based on immunological concepts and methods.
