When the endometrium is located outside its normal location, the condition is called endometriosis. Scar endometriosis (IE) is a rare entity which is reported in 0.03%-1.08% of the women following obstetric or gynaecological surgeries. Post salpingectomy endometriosis is documented in 20â€“50% of the tubes which are examined after ligation. The diagnosis is frequently made only after the excision of the lesion and after doing histopathological studies on it. We are presenting a case of a 42-years old woman who had undergone laparoscopic tubal ligation four years back and had complained of cyclic pain during menstruation. On examination, a firm nodule was found, which measured 3x4cm in size, at the laparoscopic tubal ligation site, that became spontaneously painful during menstrual bleeding. The USG report suggested a desmoid tumour. The nodule was excised and it was sent for a histopathological examination, which confirmed the diagnosis.
