A recent study found a significant correlation between endometriosis and non-obstructive forms of Müllerian anomalies. Other studies described an increased miscarriage rate in patients with endometriosis. This study assessed the effect of endometriosis on pregnancy outcome in a group of patients with endometriosis and septate uterus. Spontaneously achieved pregnancies were taken into consideration. The outcome of 179 infertile women who underwent surgery for septate uterus was analysed in a retrospective study. Stage I or II endometriosis was found by laparoscopy in 36 patients. The pregnancy outcomes, before and after metroplasty, of the group of 36 patients with septum and endometriosis were compared with the pregnancy outcomes of 143 patients with septate uterus with no endometriosis. Before metroplasty the incidence of pregnancy loss was 67% in patients without endometriosis and 75% in patients with endometriosis and the difference was not significant. After metroplasty, no significant differences have been found between the two groups, suggesting that endometriosis could be an occasional finding not influencing pregnancy outcome.
