Endometriosis is a condition in which endometrial cells are located outside the uterine cavity, mostly in the abdominal cavity and the peritoneum. It is commonly located in the ovaries, bowel, and pelvic cavity. Sometimes, it can be located in the extrapelvic region also. Inguinal endometriosis is a rare form of extrapelvic endometriosis. Most of the inguinal endometriosis present around 30–40 years of age with a prior history of gynecological or abdominal wall surgery. Our patient presented with inguinal endometriosis in the postmenopausal period without a history of prior surgery. Moreover, she did not present with classical symptoms of abdominal wall endometriosis. Inguinal endometriosis can be considered as one of the differential diagnoses in postmenopausal women even without classical symptoms of endometriosis.
