The challenge for endometriosis is to find a non-invasive diagnostic technique, early before the progression of the disease, to preserve fertility, improve comfort of life and finally avoid pelvic complications. Culdocentesis with washing easily allows exploring polymorphic peritoneal cellularity. We propose an immunohistochemical investigation procedure on cytoblocks allowing sharing of different cellular categories of the peritoneal fluid.
