Abstract

BACKGROUND: Rarely, endometriosis occurs in an abdominal wall scar after a cesarean delivery. CASE: This case report summarizes the presentation, diagnosis and treatment of a woman with an abdominal wall endometrioma within a cesarean delivery skin incision scar. CONCLUSION: An abdominal wall endometrioma needs to be considered in the differential diagnosis of any woman of reproductive age presenting with a painful abdominal wall mass and a history of uterine surgery via an abdominal incision.
