Endometriosis is defined as the presence of ectopic endometrial gland or stroma outside the endometrial cavity. When endometriosis involves organs outside the pelvis is characterized as extragenital endometriosis. Bowl involvement with endometriosis is not a common occurrence, but when it happens it stimulates various symptoms of inflammation and sometime local neoplastic conditions which are rare occasion and may lead to malignant changes that have been discussed in this literature. Though it is a benign & estrogen dependent gynecological condition it has certain gastroenterological manifestations that are commonly seen in the various gastrointestinal disorders which misleads or delays the proper diagnosis and lengthens the suffering of the patient.
