Sacrococcygeal neurofibroma: rare cause for chronic pelvic pain
Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology, 07/11/2012
Paul PG et al. – To the knowledge this is the third case of sacrococcygeal neurofibroma treated by complete laparoscopic excision. Gynecologists should keep sacrococcygeal neurofibroma as a differential diagnosis of pelvic pain with atypical location of a pelvic mass. A high index of suspicion and an appropriate imaging technique are needed for accurate diagnosis. Laparoscopy seems to be a safe and effective method of managing retroperitoneal presacral neurofibromas.
