Umbilical endometriosis is rare and challenging in both diagnosis and treatment.We report a case of an umbilical scar endometriotic nodule in a 39-year-old lady following laparoscopy-assisted vaginal hysterectomy.The wide local excision of the nodule and histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis.We discuss the pathogenesis,diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and treatment options for the patient.
