Retrorectal cyst: proteus in the backyard-case series and literature review.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Jun 2;13(6). Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Department of Surgery, University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

Retrorectal cysts are cystic lesions located in the retrorectal space and are a distinct subset of retrorectal tumours, which are often misdiagnosed due to their rarity and mimicry of symptoms caused by common diseases. We have described the presentation and management of four patients who were diagnosed with retrorectal cysts from a 10-year retrospective chart review at our institute, a tertiary care centre. In middle-aged women, the following should raise suspicion of retrorectal cyst: gastrointestinal or urinary obstructive features, mass or fullness palpable on the posterior wall on digital rectal examination, presacral dimple, perianal fistula and/or recurrent disease.

Prenatal sonographic diagnosis of urorectal septum malformation sequence and chromosomal microarray analysis: A case report and review of the literature.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2016 Nov;95(45):e5326

Department of Ultrasound Department of Obstetrics Department of Pathology, Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

Introduction: Urorectal septum malformation sequence (URSMS) is a rare congenital abnormal syndrome that is caused by the incomplete division of the cloaca. Based on whether the cloaca membrane breaks down or not, the URSMS are classified as full and partial forms. The prenatal diagnosis of URSMS remains challenging because of poor recognition to this malformation and the relatively non-specific sonographic features. Read More
