Endometriosis is a chronic inflammatory disease that highly affects the quality of life of the patient, and its recurrence creates a challenging medical as well as surgical situation. The lack of robust information about the mechanisms of recurrence and its risk factors intrigued the authors to investigate new factors associated with endometriosis. We report a rare case of 39 years-old female patient known to have congenital factor V deficiency, who underwent multiple surgeries for endometriosis during the last five years. She presented with a new episode of recurrent endometriosis. There was any risk factor for recurrence except the factor V deficiency. Factor V deficiency may be a risk factor for the recurrence of endometriosis. Long term follow up is recommended in such cases in order to decrease the morbidity of the disease. Further studies are needed to investigate the association between factor V deficiency and endometriosis.
