Abstract: Caesarean scar endometriosis is a rare condition with a reported incidence of 0.03-1.7 percent. We present a case report and review on scar endometrioma after caesarean section. A 30-year old woman presented with a cyclic painful subcutaneous nodule at the right lateral edge of her caesarean section surgical scar for 3 years. She had undergone an elective caesarean section four years prior to presentation. Pre-operative diagnosis was scar endometrioma. The mass was completely excised and pathology confirmed endometriosis. Postoperatively, a GnRH-agonist was prescribed to prevent recurrence. No recurrence was found at six-month follow-up.
