Endometriosis is defined by the presence of endometrial glands and stroma outside uterine cavity showing variable clinical symptoms under effect of estrogen. The occurrence rate of abdominal wall endometriosis after cesarean section is rare making diagnosis difficult. The case of a 36-year-old female presenting with the very painful mass and pain arising in the caesarean section scar is reported. The curable treatment of abdominal wall endometriosis is the surgical removal of all the pathological tissue, through a large excision. The involved fascia was widely excised and the abdominal wall was reconstructed using polypropylene mesh.
