Pages: 
351–3

ABSTRACT

Scar endometriosis is an under-appreciated or misdiagnosed phenomenon in general surgery and may eventually be more common than reflected in the literature.We herein report five cases of scar endometriosis that were treated in our surgical department one to five years after Caesarean section. Scar endometriosis should be considered when the symptoms are present in a cyclic manner, mostly after gynaecological operations and worsening during menstruation. Diagnosis is mainly based upon a high index of suspicion. The treatment of choice is surgical resection.
