Extension of recurrent rectal carcinoma through sciatic foramen diagnosis by computed tomography


Computerized Radiology 6(4): 193-198
Extension of recurrent rectal carcinoma through sciatic foramen diagnosis by computed tomography
An elderly man presented with a gluteal mass and features of sciatic nerve compression 7 yr after abdominoperineal resection for adenocarcinoma of the rectum. Computed tomography [CT] demonstrated local recurrence of the rectal carcinoma which extended through the sciatic foramen and resulted in these unusual presenting symptoms. The efficacy of CT in the evaluation of local recurrence from rectal malignancy is emphasized.
