Primary Umbilical Endometriosis A Case Report
A 32 year old, Para 2 with normal vaginal delivery presented with cyclical bleeding from a dark brown painful umbilical nodule for 6 months. The ultra sonogram showed a subcutaneous nodule at the umbilicus without any other abnormality. FNAC of the nodule diagnosed it as a case of umbilical endometriosis. A diagnostic laparosopy ruled out any associated pelvic endometriosis. Umbilectomy was done for the treatment of the condition.
