Abstract
Endometriosis is a long term, disabling condition and a relatively common disease, affecting 5~15% of the adult female population. Endometriosis of the urinary tract, which occurs mostly bladder or ureter, is rare and accounts for 1 or 2% of cases. However, they may cause hydronephrosis and other serious complications on the involved site. We experienced one case of vesical endometriosis and two cases of ureteral endometriosis, and report these cases with a brief review of the concerned literatures.
Key Words: Endometriosis, Urinary tract, Hydronephrosis
