Aim. We reviewed patients diagnosed as endometriosis in General Surgery Department of Fatih University Hospital.
Methods. We have invastigated the hospital records of Fatih University Hospital between 1997 (foundation of our University Hospital) and 2004. Three patients were operated by general surgeons.
Results. Two of the patients had scar endometriosis after caesarean section. One patient was operated for obstruction of the rectum.
Conclusion. Endometriosis is an uncommon condition in general surgery. But it should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of women presenting with swellings of umbilicus, surgical scars, inguinal canal and pelvis.
