Abstract:


Background: Vaginal adenosis is a rare clinicopathological entity which refers to the presence of glandular endometrial tissue in the vaginal wall.

Case report: A gravida 46-year-old woman was presented to the gynecology department with symptoms of chronic pelvic pain. Maternal Diethylstilbestrol (DES) usage has been proven effective in the development of vaginal adenosis. It can also be idiopathic. Its sonographic or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings have not been described in English literature previously.

Conclusion: Here, we report the clinical, transperineal ultrasonographic (US) and MRI findings of a pathologically proven case of vaginal adenosis.
