Deep endometriosis is a rare condition (1 to 5% of all cases). Treatment should aim at symptom relief and the recovery of the organ function. We present a case of a 30-year-old patient with severe endometriosis. The MRI showed a recto-vaginal nodule invading the serosa of the rectum wall. Double-J stents were put in place before the surgery as the ureters were also compromised.
