Caption: Endometriosis. Light micrograph of a section through the lining of the vagina showing endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition where detached parts of the uterus lining (endometrium) attach to other organs. The cysts that result (circular, red/white with dark purple lining) bleed during menstruation, causing pain, inflammation and scarring. Endometriosis is fairly common, affecting perhaps 10% of women. It is hard to diagnose, requiring surgical insertion of a laparoscope into the abdomen. It can be treated with various drugs or with surgical removal of the cysts.
