Another solid mass of around 2.5 cm in diameter was adjacent to the ovary, resembling a subserous uterine fibroid.
Submucous fibroids have the strongest association with lower ongoing pregnancy rate (OR 0.5, 95% CI 0.3 to 0.8), mainly due to defective implantation.6 However, there is no evidence that subserous or intramural fibroids adversely affect pregnancy outcome.7
As for the cT stage, it is hard to make a precise judgement of the cT1, cT2, and cT3 stages by CT scan reported by previous studies [14-16]; as a result, we divided these patients into the cT1cT3 group (tumor invasion restricted to the subserous layer) and the cT4 group (tumor invasion beyond serosa).
The bowel specimen affected by endometriosis can be histologically classified into four stages: stage 0, when the endometriotic tissue is only affecting the peritoneum and the subserosal connective tissue (not reaching the subserous plexus); stage 1, endometriotic foci are located in the subserous fat tissue or adjacent to the neurovascular branches (subserous plexus), rarely involving the external muscle layer; stage 2, the muscular wall and the Auerbach plexus are involved; and stage 3, the infiltration is reaching the submucosal nervous plexus or the mucosa [23].
