Endometriosis is characterized by the presence of endometrial gland and stroma outside of the endometrial cavity. Not only the complex nature of disease limits the identification of the pathogenic mechanisms of endometriosis but the lack of simple diagnostic procedure is the  major limitation. So identification of a simple clinical tool for the diagnosis of endometriosis has become a high priority research objective. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a class of small noncoding RNA molecules, have been recognized as key post-transcriptional regulators those may associate with endometriosis. In the present paper, we aimed to review the studies which focused on the prognosis and diagnosis of the endometriosis and miRNAs. As studies on the role of miRNAs in the pathogenesis of endometriosis increase in the literature, new ideas can be put forward for early diagnosis, prevention and treatment of the endometriosis.
