Abdominal wall endometriosis is a rare condition that occurs after a cesarean section or pelvic surgery and it has an incidence of 0.03%-1.5% in women with previous cesarean delivery. The predominant clinical picture is cyclic pain. We report two cases of abdominal wall endometriosis. The first was a 36-year-old female patient who presented for recurrent cyclic abdominal pain and was found to have endometriosis near the cesarean scar. The second was a 40-year-old female who had the same clinical presentation and was found to have endometriosis away from the scar. These cases highlight the need to have a high index of suspicion when treating women with recurrent cyclic abdominal pain.
