Abstract:

Introduction: Retroperitoneum is the third most common extragonadal site for occurrence of teratoma in children, after sacrococcygeal region and gonadal sites. Although many authors have previously reported laparoscopic removal of benign retroperitoneal teratoma in adults, the experience in pediatric setting is extremely limited.

Material and methods: We report our experience with laparoscopic excision of a mature cystic retroperitoneal teratoma occurred in a 13-year old girl, focusing on operative technical details.

Results: Primary laparoscopic excision of the retroperitoneal was achieved without intraoperative complication. Histological examination of the mass revealed a benign mature teratoma. At 3-month follow-up the patient is doing well and present no recurrence of disease; cosmetic result is excellent.

Discussion and conclusion: Knowledge of retroperitoneal anatomy, accurate preoperative assessment and adequate training and skills makes the laparoscopic resection of a benign retroperitoneal tumor a safe and feasible procedure also in a pediatric setting....
