Abstract

Presacral schwannomas are rare and account for only about 1% of cases. A 32 year old female presented with a large presacral schwannoma which extends along the greater sciatic notch, bilaterally. It was a large multiloculated cystic mass and turned out to be a degenerating schwannoma on histology. Demonstration of cystic nature on imaging helps in the early diagnosis of schwannoma, as most other retroperitoneal tumors do not frequently form cysts.
