Yes, even I ran into this issue. In my case, a simple exit and re-login to ipython seemed to sort the issue. If that doesn't sort it out then maybe you haven't yet installed skimage. Try doing so with "python install" or "python setup.y build_ext -i"

I don't know if this is the correct place to post a bug-message:

Using scikit image 0.8.1, with Python 2.7.3 and on a Win64 system, I have difficulties with importing "reconstruction". The problems seem to stem from "cmorph":

from skimage.morphology import reconstruction
ImportError                               Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-1-5fc8bff47c48> in <module>()
----> 1 from skimage.morphology import reconstruction

C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\skimage\morphology\ in <module>()
      1 from .binary import (binary_erosion, binary_dilation, binary_opening,
      2                      binary_closing)
----> 3 from .grey import *
      4 from .selem import *
      5 from .ccomp import label

C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\skimage\morphology\ in <module>()
      2 from skimage import img_as_ubyte
----> 4 from . import cmorph

ImportError: cannot import name cmorph
