Abstract

Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial glands and/ or stroma at extrauterine sites. These ectopic endometrial implants can occur nearly anywhere in the body. We here report a rare presentation of peritoneal endometriosis in a 32 years old female who presented with haemorrhagic ascites and posed a diagnostic dilemma.
