Author(s): Dr. Shilpi Raj, Dr. Ritu Mehta and Dr. Rakesh Holla

Abstract: The retroperitoneal tumors are commonly secondaries from ovaries, pancreas or colon. Among the primary retroperitoneal tumors, mucinous adenomas are more common than mucinous adenocarcinomas. Clinically, they may present as abdominal masses, weakness of limbs and weight loss. Radiologically, they present as cystic masses, the exact origin of which cannot be ascertained. Here, we present a case of 30 years male with symptoms of difficulty in passing urine, pain and weakness of left lower limb with thinning of the limb since 6 to 7 months and accompanied by history of erectile dysfunction. PET CT showed left mesorectal fascial thickening with loss of fat plane, indentation of left posterior bladder wall and no metabolically active Lymph node being detected.
