Gynecologic Oncology Associates, Hoag Memorial Hospital Cancer Center, Newport Beach, California 92663, USA.



Endometriosis is commonly identified in the abdomen, specifically the ovaries, adnexa, and fallopian tubes, and sometimes in more distant areas; precoccygeal endometriosis is an extremely rare phenomenon.


We present a case involving a 44-year-old woman diagnosed and treated for precoccygeal endometriosis. She underwent laparotomy, extensive lysis of pelvic adhesions, and resection of a 2.5-cm midline precoccygeal mass. After surgical excision of the precoccygeal endometriosis, the patient recovered without incident.


Precoccygeal endometriosis is a very rare diagnosis.
