Limitations of the rAFS classification include arbitrariness of the scoring system, limited reproducibility, failure to consider the morphological type of the lesion and a limited value of the system to aid in the evaluation and management in the setting of pelvic pain. These and other critical opinions led in 1997 to the publication of a Revised American Society for Reproductive Medicine classification of endometriosis: 1996 [30]. Diversity of lesions Peritoneal endometriosis In the 1980s it became evident that peritoneal endometriosis has multiple appearances including microscopic foci, early-active (red, glandular or vesicular), advanced (black, puckered), and healed (white, fibrotic) forms.

Vercellini et al [28] analyzed the prevalence and severity of dysmenorrhea, intermenstrual pain and deep dyspareunia in relation to morphological features of peritoneal endometriosis. A statistically significant association was observed only with deep dyspareunia. Fresh, papular, atypical lesions might cause functional pain, whereas “old,” black nodules immersed in infiltrating scars might provoke mainly organic pain. Belasch et al [40] found a high prevalence of superficial endometriosis in biopsies from the uterosacral ligaments in both patients with chronic pelvic pain and asymptomatic (fertile and infertile) women.
