Endometriosis is a disease with causes still unclear, affecting approximately 15% of women of reproductive age. According to direct implantation theory, the endometrial or decidual tissues start to grow in susceptible individuals when implanted at new sites. 1-2% of women with endometriosis have involvement of the urinary tract, most frequency the bladder which is observed in up to 85% of the cases. The most effective treatment is partial cystectomy, especially via video laparoscopy. We report a case in which a patient presented with symptoms suggestive of bladder endometriosis secondary to cesarean section. It was completely excised through laparoscopy and the patient had complete resolution of symptoms and improved quality of life.
