A diagnosis of endosalphingosis in the pediatric population is extremely rare - in some cases it may coexist with or mimic endometriosis, and hence is missed. On the other hand, its close relationship with the development of serous tumors is an issue that needs attention. Histopathology confirms the diagnosis. Surgery is the mainstay of management and medical therapy is for symptom relief. We present a case of endosalpingiosis presenting in an unusual age group, in a new location, and describe the benefit of using off-label colchicine for adjuvant therapy.
