Endometriosis classification, staging and reporting systems: a review on the road to a universally accepted endometriosis classification  

INTERNATIONAL WORKING GROUP OF AAGL, ESGE, ESHRE AND WES, N. VERMEULEN, M.S. ABRAO, J.I. EINARSSON, A.W. HORNE, N.P. JOHNSON, T.T.M. LEE, S. MISSMER, J. PETROZZA, C. TOMASSETTI, K.T. ZONDERVAN, G. GRIMBIZIS, R.L. DE WILDE

In the field of endometriosis, several classification, staging and reporting systems have been developed. However, endometriosis classification, staging and reporting systems that have been published and validated for use in clinical practice have not been systematically reviewed up to now.  

An International Terminology for Endometriosis, 2021 

INTERNATIONAL WORKING GROUP OF AAGL, ESGE, ESHRE AND WES, C. TOMASSETTI, N.P. JOHNSON, J. PETROZZA, M.S. ABRAO, J.I. EINARSSON, A.W. HORNE, T.T.M. LEE, S. MISSMER, N. VERMEULEN, K.T. ZONDERVAN, G. GRIMBIZIS, R.L. DE WILDE

Different classification systems have been developed for endometriosis, using different definitions for the disease, the different subtypes, symptoms and treatments. In addition, an International Glossary on Infertility and Fertility Care was published in 2017 by the International Committee for Monitoring Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ICMART) in collaboration with other organisations. An international working group convened over the development of a classification or descriptive system for endometriosis. As a basis for such system, a terminology for endometriosis was considered a condition sine qua non.
