Minimally invasive management of an atypical large pelvic epidermoid
cyst: Operative Technique
AbstractComplete surgical removal of a large retrovesical pelvic cyst with an
unusual extension could be technically demanding with the high risk of
injury to the adjacent vital structures. Opting a conservative approach
may reduce morbidity, as the reported incidence of malignancy is very
low. This operative technique demonstrates that no evident arising point
could be identified on diagnostic laparoscopy, hence the cyst was
drained vaginally with partial excision and marsupialization.
Histological analysis confirmed a benign epidermoid cyst and there is no
recurrence to date.
