Intestinal endometriosis has been found in 3%-37% of menstruating women and isolated ileal deposit is very rare (1%-7%). It is an infrequent cause of intestinal obstruction, ranging from 7% to 23% of all cases with intestinal involvement. We report our experience in a lady who presented with recurrent bouts of pain abdomen mimicking appendicitis and was found to have a mass in the right iliac fossa on diagnostic laparoscopy. In spite of conservative management she went on to develop acute intestinal obstruction and underwent emergency laparotomy and limited colonic resection. Histology of the resected spec-imen showed evidence of endometriosis.
