Complete remission of cerebral endometriosis with dienogest: a case report

The most recent evidences suggest the use of progesterone mimicking drugs for the treatment of endometriosis. Particularly, dienogest has been largely tested. However, the standard treatment of extra-pelvic endometriosis is debated.

Particularly, cerebral localization of endometriosis is a very rare clinical condition. The surgical approach for such a particular disorder would consist in difficult procedures, thus leading to prefer the medical treatment.

We hereby report the clinical case of a cerebral localization of endometriosis treated with dienogest who experienced a complete remission of the disease.
