Abstract

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and endometriosis are little researched co-morbidities. Symptoms overlap and the lack of a suitable biological marker or a non-invasive diagnostic test, in both cases, make diagnosis complex and confusing.1 IBS is a gastrointestinal condition diagnosed by the absence of organic disease and the presence of recurrent abdominal pain and alteration in bowel habit.2
