Menstruating from the umbilicus
as a rare case of primary umbilical endometriosis: a case report
Endometriosis is a common
gynecological condition and presents mainly with involvement of the pelvic
organs. Extrapelvic presentations in almost all parts of the body have been
reported in the literature. However, umbilical endometriosis that is
spontaneous or secondary to surgery is uncommon and accounts for only 0.5% to
1% of all endometriosis cases.
A 35-year-old Caucasian woman
presented with umbilical bleeding during periods of menstruation. Her umbilicus
had a small nodule with bloody discharge. An ultrasound was performed and a
diagnosis of possible umbilical endometriosis was thus made. The nodule shrunk
in response to gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues but continued to
persist. The patient underwent a wide local excision of the nodule with a
corresponding umbilical reconstruction. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis
of umbilical endometriosis. The patient was asymptomatic at follow-up, but
nevertheless warned of the risk of recurrence.
Pelvic endometriosis is a common
condition, but the diagnosis of primary umbilical endometriosis is difficult
and differentials should be considered. This case strongly suggests that a
differential diagnosis of endometriosis should be considered when an umbilical
swelling presents in a woman of reproductive age.
