Bottom Line: Eventually, the patient died of the disease 15 months after surgery.Complete excision without rupture is essential.Retroperitoneal mucinous cystadenocarcinoma is a rare tumor, and it is urgently necessary to elucidate the etiology of an effective therapy for the disease.

fig0010: Operative finding: cystic lesion (arrow head) displaced the ascending colon (black dot).

Mentions: She underwent operation under the diagnosis of retroperitoneal cystic neoplasms. Preoperative aspiration of the cysts was not attempted to avoid iatrogenic dissemination. Transabdominal resection of the cysts was performed (Fig. 2). The cysts could mostly be dissected off from retroperitoneal tissue without difficulty except for a firm adhesion at the caudal tendon of the right psoas muscle, suggestive of the origination of the cysts. Her appendix and ovary appeared normal. Two cranial cysts contained approximately 700 ml of transparent colorless mucinous fluid, and other caudal cysts contained approximately 400 ml of transparent black mucinous fluid, which turned out to be slight contamination of blood. Those fluids were mucinous, but not as phlegmatic as pseudomyxoma peritonei. Cytological examination for those fluids revealed no malignant cells.
