Endometriosis is a common disease of reproductive-age women that is often first encountered with ultrasound. Therefore, familiarity with the variety of manifestations of endometriosis is important for appropriate diagnosis and management. The aim of this article is to review the spectrum of appearance of pelvic endometriosis and to discuss potential mimics on ultrasound. Given that magnetic resonance imaging is an important problem-solving tool in female pelvic imaging, magnetic resonance imaging correlation is also provided.
