A 28-year-old woman, presented with a history of long-standing, severe pelvic and bowel endometriosis. Pronounced cul-de-sac tenderness and nodularity were noted on pelvic examination. Videolaseroscopy was undertaken, the rectum was mobilized, and the tumor was prolapsed to the level of the anus. Anterior rectal wall resection and reanastomosis were performed; the colon was returned to the pelvis under direct visualization via laparoscope.
