Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus and located usually within the pelvis. It may be detected as a rare complication associated with surgery. Endometriosis following obstetric and gynecologic procedure, which is localized mostly in the surgical scar including Cesarean section scar, hysterotomy scar, trocar scar, Bartholin cyst exision scar, or episiotomy scar, may caused by implantation of endometrial gland and stroma. Endometriosis developing after hysterectomy, especially, is a quite rare condition except a recurrent disease. We have experienced a case of a 47-year-old woman who had diagnosed ovarian endometriosis two years after laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy for a large leiomyomatous uterus with no evidence of endometriosis, so we report this case with a brief review of literature.
