The Teaching Point

Thoracic endometriosis syndrome constitutes a group of disorders which includes catamenial pneumothorax, catamenial hemothorax, catamenial hemoptysis, lung nodules, isolated catamenial chest pain and catamenial pneumomediastinum. Clinical history of catamenial symptoms coupled with HRCT findings of ground glass attenuation is suggestive of pulmonary endometriosis. Pelvic ultrasound should be done in all cases as pelvic and pulmonary endometriosis coexists.

Abstract
Thoracic endometriosis is a rare form of extrapelvic endometriosis. These patients typically present with catamenial pneumothorax or hemoptysis. Adequate clinical history coupled with HRCT helps in early diagnosis and appropriate management of thoracic endometriosis.
