Parietal-Scar Endometriosis after Cesarean Section: about Nine Cases and Review of the Literature
Abstract: Endometriosis of the abdominal wall, defined as the ectopic implantation of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity, is a rare and often overlooked condition. It usually occurs on a gynecological or obstetrical surgical scar. The typical clinical presentation is that of a parietal mass associated with pain punctuated by menstruation. The diagnosis is confirmed histologically. The treatment is mainly surgical and is based on the complete excision of the lesion.
