Abstract.

We report a rare case of pseudomyxoma retroperitonei in a 58-year-old woman with a past history of severe appendicitis. The imaging showed a multicystic mass similar to pseudomyxoma peritonei, but the tumor was located in the retroperitoneal space.

Key words: Retroperitoneal neoplasms Retroperitoneal space Computed tomography Magnetic resonance imaging Ultrasonography
