Abstract

Xanthogranulomatous inflammation is a rare form of chronic inflammation that is destructive of normal tissue in affected organs.  It is characterised by the presence of foamy histiocytes associated with other inflammatory cells like lymphocytes, plasma cells and neutrophils.  Only 15 cases have been reported in literature involving the ovary. Here, we report a case of xanthogranulomatous oophoritis in a patient with endometriosis, suffering from chronic pelvic pain and infertility. The association between endometriosis and xanthogranulomatous inflammation is extremely rare and can possibly represent a severe histologic expression of this common disorder.
