Abstract

Abdominal wall endometrioma is a rare clinical condition with which the general surgeon is faced and usually presents a diagnostic challenge due to the similar signs and symptoms that this illness shares with other tumors of the abdominal wall. A clinical case which exemplifies this diagnostic challenge is presented, and a review is made about the physiopathology, diagnosis and treatment of abdominal wall endometriomas, emphasizing on the different diagnoses with which it can be confused.
