In 1958 100 women were written up in the literature with endometriosis on the lung causing it to fill up with fluid and collapse. The catamenial pneumothorax was considered extremely rare. Now record numbers of women have been diagnosed with this disease, and still many physicians and women, have never heard of it.

About the Author
Dr. Glynis D. Wallace, a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, former Major in the USAF, and internationally known author. The centerpiece of all public relations efforts for Dr. Wallace is her amazing book "Living With Lung and Colon Endometriosis: Catamenial Pneumothorax", the first known published book on Catamenial Pneumothorax (menstrual lung collapse) now sold in many different countries. The book underscores her passion and provides the legitimacy of her credentials for writing the book. It is a tribute to her plight, and enormous ability to story tell with honesty her maze-like healthcare journey. With authority and fortitude, she initiated awareness and diagnosis to peak during her lung endometriosis advocacy. Dr. Wallace created the Wikipedia page for Catamenial Pneumothorax in 2006 which stimulated a move to action with undetermined numbers of women being diagnosed globally with Thoracic Endometriosis Syndrome.
