Rare, possible: 2 families noted in OMIM,showed possible genetic predisposition. Emge (1962) noted "7 mother-daughter pairs who had undergone surgery for adenomyosis over a 15-year period. Arnold et al. (1995) reported a family with "adenomyosis in 3 successive generations; 2 sisters, their mother, and their maternal grandmother." That's it.
