Abstract
Endometriosis is generally confined to the pelvic viscera and the peritoneum, but it can proliferate in other areas like pleura, skin, extremities, lung, gallbladder, stomach, kidney and surgical scar. Scar endometriosis usually occurs in the surgical scar of previous cesarean sections, hysterotomy and episiotomy. The occurrence of endometrioma in cesarean scar is an infrequent event, usually presenting as a tender abdominal wall mass. We report two cases of abdominal wall endometrioma after cesarean section, which is presented with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Endometriosis, Surgical scar, Cesarean section
