Multipotential endometrial stromal cells have the capacity to transform into various types of cells and these cells contain high amount of acid mucopolysacharide in the adjacent stroma, as also occurs in both normal and experimental cartilage.3 Bhatia and Hoshiko (1982) suggested that calcification and cartilage are due to prolonged retention of fetal parts, chronic inflammation and tissue destruction following repeated spontaneous or therapeutic abortions and that in some reported cases infertility was secondary to calcification of the endometrium.4-6 In our case however, no history of previous abortion was present.
