Endometriosis is a common disease and affects 10% of women of reproductive age. Lesions are commonly located in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, utero-sacral ligaments, pelvic wall, and cul-de-sac. However, endometriosis can sometimes infiltrate other organs, such as the bladder, ureter, sigmoid colon, and rectum. This is referred to as DIE and is defined as endometriosis infiltrating more than 5 mm beneath the peritoneum. DIE involving the bladder is extremely rare and occurs in only 1% of women with endometriosis. Malignant transformation of endometriosis is a well-established pathology, but only a few cases of malignant transformation of DIE involving the bladder have been reported. This article reports a case of endometrioid carcinoma arising from DIE involving the bladder and review the relevant literature.
