Adenomyosis is defined as the presence of endometrial glands and stoma invading the myometrium, along with different degrees of hyperplasia and hypertrophy of the smooth muscle fibers surrounding the lesion. The presence of ectopic endometrial gland and stroma in an ectopic location is similar to what is seen in patients diagnosed with endometriosis.
