Cases of scar endometriosis after caesarean section
Introduction: The presence of functional endometrial tissue in the surgical scar, which commonly follows caesarean section is called scar endometriosis. It is a very rare condition which is commonly misdiagnosed.
Case report: We report two cases of scar endometriosis which developed after caesarean section. One case was misdiagnosed as a keloid for a long duration (12 years) and other one was not diagnosed despite the characteristic presenting symptoms. Both the cases underwent surgical excision with free resection margins and histopathological confirmation of diagnosis.
Conclusions: Clinicians must be aware of varying presentations of scar endometriosis to ensure timely diagnosis and treatment.
