Abstract

Endometriosis is the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue outside the uterus and cutaneous endometriosis is a rare manifestation of this disease that may be found at the sites of surgical scars as a result of iatrogenic implantation. Herein we present a case of scar endometriosis in a 35-year-old woman. The scar was sustained following a remote caesarean section.
