Abdominal wall endometrioma (AWE) being an unusual phenomenon is a benign tumor defined as ectopic functional, endometrial tissue located in the abdominal wall. Abdominal wall endometrioma is a rare sequela to gynecologic surgeries such as cesarean section, tubal ligation, and hysterectomies. The incidence varies from 1 to 2%. It presents as intense pain and discomfort to the patient with a seemingly non discernible cause. Awareness of this entity can help the surgeon to make an early diagnosis and deliver prompt treatment, usually surgical. We present a case of AWE, along with a brief review of literature.
