Abstract

Endometriosis is characterized by the presence of histologically normal endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. Endometriotic implants are usually located in the pelvic organs, but they have been described in almost every location of the female body. It may also be present after cesarean section or other gynecological operations. In this study, we reported a rare case of endometriosis located in an indirect inguinal hernia sac.
