Wonder of the Diagnostics: Endometriosis in Canal of Nuck

Prerna Chhabra | Ritu Priya Chowdhury

Abstract: Endometriosis in the Canal of Nuck is an extremely rare phenomenon that can be difficult to diagnose because of its unusual location and wide range of clinical manifestations. This paper describes the case of a 31 - year - old female patient who initially complained of groin edema followed by suprapubic pain that persisted for two years. A cystic lesion seen in the Canal of Nuck using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) raised the possibility of endometriosis. The initial radiological findings were supported by surgical investigation, which established the existence of endometrial implants. This specific case highlights how important imaging methods are for identifying endometriosis in uncommon places, which allows for prompt treatment and improves patient outcomes. It also emphasizes how important a diverse approach is to guarantee comprehensive care to the patient.
