Authors in submitted text report five patients diagnosed with endometriosis of the urinary tract. In four patients we observed involvement of the bladder, in one patient localization of the left ureter. The authors point out necessity of thorough examination and evaluation of nonspecific symptoms that are typical of endometriosis of the urinary tract. Gold standard of treatment is surgical treatment, which is followed in the case of recurrence by castration therapy by either danazol or LHRH administration.

Key words:
endometriosis, transurethral resection, danazol, LHRH
