Article Title

Colonic endometriosis with malignant transformation mimicking a diverticular abscess

Abstract

Endometriosis is a common condition in women and intestinal involvement occurs in up to 37% of patients. Malignant transformation, however, is rare and is documented in only 1% of cases. Although several case reports and small series have emerged during the past decade, there is still little experience with malignant change in intestinal endometriosis.
