Abstract

Primary retroperitoneal (RP) teratoma is a rare entity which has a distinctive imaging appearance. We describe herein the case of a 25-year-old man in whom a RP teratoma was found to have an extremely unusual imaging morphology by ultrasound and computed tomography (CT). The tumor was resected and histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of primary benign RP teratoma.
