Mentions: We present the case of a 42-year-old female with a medical history of treatment–resistant cycloiriditis. No history of dysuria or difficulties in defecation were reported. As part of the medical investigation to rule out an inflammatory bowel disease, a gastroscopy & colonoscopy were performed. These failed to show a pathological finding, leading to the decision to carry out a MR enterography, which detected a pelvic mass that was further investigated through an abdominopelvic CT. The CT scan showed a left-lying, well-circumscribed, rounded presacral mass at the level of the 4th sacral vertebra, measuring 3.4 × 2.8 cm (red arrow in Fig. 1a and b), with a central liquid component, a peripheral tissue density of 31HE, and a fine calcification at the right rim. No signs of osseous destruction were noted.
