Endometriosis is commonly associated with chronic pelvic pain and its presentation varies between individuals. The only way to confirm the presence of endometriosis is via keyhole or open surgery. In the presence of hematuria, deep endometriotic infiltration needs to be considered. We share an interesting case highlighting the role of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography in evaluating a posterior urinary bladder wall lesion and hypodense liver lesions in a middle-aged woman with presenting with frank hematuria in the background of treated cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and adenomyosis.
