This is a report of a 28 year woman who presented with a three month history of bleeding from her caesarean section scar during her monthly menstruation, in whom abdominal examination revealed a midline subumbilical scar with a sinus surrounded by area of induration discharging menstrum. A wide excision of the lesion was performed and history confirmed endometriosis.
