Abstract Endometriosis of the appendix is an entity of extragonadal endometriosis. It commonly affects women in the childbearing age with a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations. Women can present with symptoms mimicking acute appendicitis or chronic pelvic pain. The surgical management varies from simple appendectomy to right hemicolectomy depending on the clinical findings. We report 3 cases of endometriosis of the appendix presenting with appendiceal intussusception. The surgical literature is reviewed and current surgical management is discussed.
