Computed tomography-guided preoperative localization of abdominal wall endometrioma

Published:September 13, 2014DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ajog.2014.09.006
      A multiparous obese patient with prior abdominal surgeries complained of cyclic abdominal pain located near the surgical scar. A 1 cm lesion was identified on imaging. Computed tomography–guided needle localization was performed immediately before surgery. This allowed for complete excision of the abdominal wall endometrioma and resolution of the cyclic, focal abdominal pain.
