OBJECTIVE: To report a case of primary bladder endometriosis treated with laparoscopic partial cystectomy.
METHODS: We report the case of a 38 year old woman presenting with cyclic catamenial pain and hematuria who was diagnosed of bladder endometriosis by means of cystoscopy and MRI. Partial cystectomy using a laparoscopic approach was performed and symptoms disappeared.
RESULTS: We report a well-documented case of primary bladder endometriosis and the laparoscopic approach used for its treatment. A review of the concept and the therapeutic alternatives are presented.
CONCLUSIONS: Bladder endometriosis must be in mind when cyclic catamenial symptoms of pain and hematuria are present. When diagnosed, the laparoscopic approach must be considered the preferential option.
