Cutaneous endometriosis is a rare skin pathology that may present to the gynaecologist, general surgeon, dermatologist, or plastic surgeon. It is often misdiagnosed due to its rarity and variable appearance. In the current literature recommendations for its management vary greatly. We present a case of cutaneous endometriosis presenting to a plastic surgery service, as well as a review of the literature. Cutaneous endometriosis should be considered as a differential in any female presenting with an umbilical lesion, and should be diagnosed histiologically following an excision biopsy with 2 mm margins.
