Ruptured endometrioma: A rare event
Author(s): Dr. Bhaktii Kohli, Dr. Anushree Sharma and Dr. Santosh Minhas
Abstract: Endometriosis is a benign condition which invades locally and hence disseminates widely. Though, it is a hormone dependent and a non-neoplastic condition, yet malignant transformation is possible. When encysted, the cyst enlarges with the cyclic bleeding and the serum gets absorbed in between the menses to make the contents chocolate coloured. The cyst can rupture spontaneously causing acute abdomen and is often confused with ovarian torsion, ectopic pregnancy. Thus, we are reporting a similar case of spontaneous ruptured endometrioma, which is a rare entity.
