We report the case of a postmenopausal woman with a synchronous obstructing intrinsic endometrioma of the left ureter and a coexistent periurethral leiomyoma. Endometriosis in postmenopausal women is a rare clinical entity usually associated with exogenous estrogen use. Urethral leiomyomas are also rare, with only 40 cases reported in the literature. Ovarian hormones are believed to influence the growth of leiomyomas. We report the genitourinary presentation of 2 separate disease entities with known hormonal influence in a postmenopausal woman receiving estrogen replacement therapy. We believe the patient's hormonal milieu affected the development of her concurrent pathology.
