Background: Cervical cone biopsy is a common simple surgical procedure for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and cervical microinvasive carcinoma, with post-surgical bleeding being a common complication. ----Case Report: A 30-year-old woman with a history of cone biopsy two years prior complained of cyclic genital bleeding during the luteal phase of menstruation for more than a year. She was diagnosed with cervical scar endometriosis after cone biopsy. Electric ablation suppressed her long-term atypical genital bleeding, which caused her discomfort. Conclusion: The authors treated a rare case of uterine cervical endometriosis after cone biopsy. We should consider ectopic scar endometriosis during the differential diagnosis of atypical bleeding in women who have had a cone biopsy.
