Endometriosis affecting the urinary tract is rare and when involved it predominantly affects the bladder, followed by the ureter. The diagnosis of bladder endometriosis is difficult because of its varied clinical presentation. Here we report a case of bladder endometriosis, which was suspected pre-operatively and was confirmed after the histo pathological examination of the excised tissue.

Key words: Extra genital Endometriosis, Bladder Endometriosis, Vesical Endometriosis
