A 37-year-old woman, G3P2, with 2 prior cesarean deliveries, was referred with hematuria in pregnancy. The patient endorsed longstanding dysmenorrhea and catamenial hematuria. Transabdominal ultrasound showed an avascular 4.3 × 1.7 × 3.2-cm mass arising from the posterior bladder wall (Figure 1A) with papillary projections extending into the bladder (Figure 1B,Video). The placenta was fundal. Cystoscopy at 10 weeks’ gestation confirmed an exophytic mass distorting the bladder trigone. Biopsy findings were consistent with endometriosis. Mass size and appearance remained unchanged on serial ultrasounds.
