Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: Endometriosis is a common gynecological disorder affecting women of reproductive age. The localization and stage of endometriosis determine the clinical course of the disease. In this study, colorectal invasion in endometriosis cases were evaluated retrospectively.
Material and Methods: Between January 2011 and December 2019, female patients aged 18-60 that had undertaken colonoscopy examinations, appendectomies, colorectal resections and bowel shave was performed to remove mass in the intestinal wall. All results were evaluated retrospectively. After histopathological examinations, the results obtained, including findings of endometriosis were included in the study.
Results: The mean age of patients was found to be 41.78±2.03. 30078 patients who had colonoscopy and rectosigmoidoscopy only two endometriosis was found(0.06%). Five out of 554 colorectal resection specimens (0.9%) and 8 out of 1516 appendectomy specimens were detected with endometriosis. Endometriosis was detected in 3 other cases with an invasive mass on the colon wall during gynecological operations and finally, in one patient holding the entire intestinal system along with the peritoneal surfaces in the abdomen. Altogether 19 cases of endometriosis were detected, 42% was invasion of the appendix tissue (most common) and the rectum being second with 21% most common localization.
Conclusion: Colorectal invasion of the endometriosis is a rare clinical condition. The radiological appearance of the lumen obstruction could be confused with malignancy, cases that have not been diagnosed can visit emergency services with ileus due to lumen obstruction. In these cases surgical treatments are the best treatment option.
