Recurrent abdominal wall endometriosis at the trocar site of laparoscopy: A rare case|
Akbarzadeh-Jahromi, Mojgan; Motavas, Maedeh & Fazelzadeh, Afsoon
Background: Surgical scar endometriosis is typically presented as a slow-growing,
painful abdominal mass near the site of a past surgery. Endometriosis on the trocar
port site is rare. To best of our knowledge, only 17 cases have been reported in the
literature. The nonspecific nature of endometriosis presents a diagnostic challenge,
and it is often considered as an incisional hernia or other conditions.
Case: Here, we described our experience with a recurrent abdominal scar
endometriosis case at the trocar port site of a previous laparoscopy, which was
initially thought to be an incisional hernia.
Conclusion: Abdominal wall endometriosis should be considered as an important
differential diagnosis in females with a positive history of prior abdominal surgery,
presented with painful nodule or mass at the site of the surgery.
