Asymptomatic incisional endometrioma of the anterior abdominal wall is rare. Clinical diagnosis may be difficult. We present a 26-year-old woman with incisional abdominal wall endometrioma discovered 5 years after caeserian section. It was painless and there was no change in size with menstruation. The patient's body size was average with a palpable lump at the edge of the caeserian section scar. Clinically desmoid tumour was suspected. The patient underwent surgical excision. Histopathology confirmed endometrioma. There was no recurrence on three months follow-up.
