    We report a rare case of congenital type III cystic teratoma that may be falsely diagnosed as an anterior sacral meningocele. A female newborn baby presented with a long, white-colored 4 × 1 cm coccygeal cyst posterior to the anus. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated that a 10...

    Pilonidal sinuses (PS) predominantly affect young male adults, usually occurring in the sacrococcygeal region. However, PS occasionally occurs in other parts of the body, referred to as extrasacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus (ESPS). We herein evaluate ESPS ethiopathogenesis and treatment. Of a...

    Purpose: Neonatal neoplasms are rare tumours notorious for their atypical presentation and unpredictable behaviour. Their optimal treatment remains uncertain, a dilemma compounded by the deleterious effects of adjuvant chemo- or radiotherapy during this vulnerable period of growth....

    Chordomas are rare bony tumors, usually involving the skull base and sacrococcygeal spine, while least presented in cervical and thoracic spine. Chordomas of the cervical spine may cause variable neurological symptoms. Adult patients presenting with neck pain, paresthesias or limb paresis are...

    The article presents a case study of a four-year-old female patient who was presented with a subcutaneous sacrococcygeal mass and was admitted for neurosurgical evaluation. Pathologic microscopic evaluation showed a majority component of both myxopapillary ependymoma and ependymoblastoma. She...

    Sacrococcygeal yolk sac tumor (YST) is an extremely rare malignant extra-gonadal germ-cell tumor, which usually succeeds to the degeneration of more common benign teratoma. We describe here an unprecedented case of conus medullaris compression by a spinal metastasis from a pure sacrococcygeal...

    We report a case of a rare congenital teratoma that developed in a lipoma attached to a remnant human tail. A male newborn baby presented with a large, 3-cm mass with an open margin, which pedunculated from a tail attached to the midline skin of the coccygeal area. Magnetic resonance images...

    A best evidence topic was arranged according to the previously accepted structured protocol. The question addressed here was if flap construction after excision of pilonidal sinus tracks showed difference in functional outcome compared to simple closure. A total of 118 papers were found using...

    Introduction: There is little data on sacral insufficiency fracture(SIF) incidence following pelvic radiotherapy, with existing studies based on conventional fractionation. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), characterized by dose escalation with hypofractionation, may pose even greater risks...
