Endometriosis of umbilical cicatrix: a clinical case

, : Endometriosis of umbilical cicatrix: a clinical case. Chirurgia Italiana 53(2): 259-262

The Authors report a case of umbilical endometriosis in a 46-year-old patient. The woman came in for observation describing acute pain in the vicinity of the umbilical scar. The pain was occasional at first and then became steady and increased at the time of menstruation. Medical examination revealed a left paraumbilical nodule, measuring 1 cm in diameter. The patient underwent surgical treatment: the nodule was excised and the subsequent histological examination was diagnostic for umbilical endometriosis. The surgical excision was effective: at follow-up 3 months later, there was no recurrence and the patient was in good general condition.
