Özet

Vulvar edema as a complication of laparoscopy is a rare condition. A 23-year-old woman was admitted with progressive dysmenorrhea and underwent laparoscopic bilateral endometrioma cystectomy. Twenty-seven hours after surgery, unilateral vulvar edema was observed. It resolved with the application of ice packs and insertion of a Foley catheter. We conclude that this is a rare, normally benign condition that is easy to manage.
