Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of endometriosis presenting to a general surgeon as a groin mass in a 22-year old lady with no abdominal or pelvic symptoms and who had previously been pregnant is reported. Though similar presentations have been reported previously, we believe this is the first case to be reported from Ibadan in this form and we wish to emphasis the importance of consideration of this diagnosis in any groin swelling in a young female as well as the necessity of having a histological examination done on all excised lumps.
