Endometriosis is a disease represented by the presence of extra uterine endometrial tissue. It is a rare condition, and
malignant transformation is seldom. We report a case with clear cell adenocarcinoma oncogenesis on abdominal wall scar
that appeared after years of a caesarian section. After diagnosis, surgical treatment was performed twice, due to the fact
that the margins were infiltrated with tumor cells, with replacement of the defect with a polypropylene mesh. The patient
was cured and discharged with a favorable prognostic. To the best of our knowledge, there are few reported cases of clear
cell adenocarcinoma arising from abdominal wall endometriosis. It is a rare condition that appears mostly after abdominal
surgical interventions that clinicians must be aware.
