Endometriosis is diagnosed when tissue which resembles the endometrial lining exists outside the endometrial cavity. Although first described as a pathological entity in the late 1800s, the term “endometriosis” was not introduced until the early 1920s by Sampson. The great volume of literature which has accumulated on this topic is, by and large, a product of the 20th century.
