 A 71-year-old woman was admitted to a nearby hospital for increasing distention in the buttocks. Imaging studies showed a 10cm sized cystic tumor in pre and retro sacral space, but solid lesions were not seen. Percutaneous biopsy of the tumor was performed but no definitive diagnosis was obtained. Laparoscopic and transsacral operation was performed because the patient requested surgical treatment. The surgical findings revealed the tumor compressing the rectum and adhering strongly to sacrococcygeal region. Despite these findings, tumorectomy was performed without rectal resection. Histopathological finding revealed mucinous carcinoma. We herein report this rare case with literature review.
