Endometriosis is a common disorder in women of reproductive age. Scar endometriosis is an infrequent type of extrapelvic endometriosis associated with obstetrical and gynecological surgeries but is rarely observed in abdominal scar after cesarean section. We are reporting here a case of scar endometriosis in a 30-year-old woman involving subcutaneous and muscular planes following cesarean section. Preoperative diagnosis of cesarean scar endometriosis was made by clinical examination, radiological imaging, fine-needle aspiration cytology, and confirmed histologically after surgical excision.
