ABSTRACT
Cutaneous deciduosis is an exceedingly rare manifestation of endometriosis potentially mistaken for malignancy and thus far documented solely within surgical scars. In the scars, the prevalence of surgically proven endometriosis is around 1.6% and is often difficult to diagnose due to its rarity. It is often confused with stitch granuloma, hernia, lipoma, cysts, desmoids tumor, sarcoma etc. Areas of myxoid change or marked decidual change in the stroma can make the recognition difficult. Here we present a case of caesarian scar deciduosis in a 37-year-old female.
