Abstract

We present the case of a 40-year-old woman who had been previously operated for endometrioma by laparoscopy, with the complaint of an umbilical mass with cyclical pain pattern. The dark-colored mass was excised and pathology report revealed it to be an endometriotic implant. (C) 2005 Mosby, Inc. All rights reserved.
