Abstract

Caesarean section is the most common surgery linked to the development of abdominal wall endometriosis. We report a rare case of caesarean scar endometriosis in a 30-year-old female after four years of lower segment caesarean section. The patient had a classic history of cyclical pain, swelling and bleeding. The symptoms were not relieved by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotic. The diagnosis of scar endometriosis was made on the basis of clinical history and ultrasonography findings. The lesion was surgically excised under spinal anesthesia and histopathological analysis was done for final diagnosis. There were no symptoms during the post-surgical follow-up.
