BACKGROUND: Endometriosis is the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus. Abdominal wall endometriosis is a very rare location of this pathology. We aimed to report a series of five cases of abdominal wall endometriosis following cesarean section at our clinic.
CASE REPORT: All of our cases had had previous cesareans section and complained of pain at the pfannensteil incision scar. The cases presented palpable and tender masses near the scar. After excision of the masses histopathology reported the masses as endometriosis.
CONCLUSION: Abdominal wall endometriosis is a rare condition. Clinicians should be aware of this pathology especially in women presenting with a painful mass near the scar of a previous cesarean section.
