Retrorectal or presacral tumors are rare, with incidences of approximately 0.01%. Generally, these tumors have no specific symptoms and are likely to be found incidentally on CT or MRI scans. Most of them are benign masses, but malignant masses are reported on occasion. The modality of treatment is a resection in cases of a benign mass, but chemotherapy or radiation therapy can be done in cases of malignancy. Like our case, a matured cystic teratoma in the retrorectal area is very rare. In addition, no laparoscopic resection of a retrorecal teratoma was reported until 2008. Thus, we report the case of a 31-yr-old female patient who underwent a total laparoscopic excision for a matured cystic teratoma in the retrorectal space.
Key Words: Retrorectal tumor; Cystic teratoma; Laparoscopy
