Spontaneous umbilical endometriosis occurring in absence of any previous abdominal or uterine surgery is extremely atypical. Its association with umbilical hernia is very rare and hernia getting spontaneously resolved has not been reported in literature so far. Here we report a case of a patient with spontaneous umbilical endometriosis associated with umbilical hernia which led to spontaneous hernia reduction. This was also associated with multiple uterine fibromyoma and bilateral ovarian endometrioma which were simultaneously treated by total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy along with surgical excision of the endometriotic tissue and repair of the abdominal wall defect. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first described case of spontaneous umbilical hernia reduction due to development of endometriosis.
