Pudendal tumor mimicking cauda equina syndrome and acute radiculopathy: case report

Introduction Cauda equina syndrome is the most common cause of lumbar disc herniation, and its associated therapy requires prompt surgical intervention. Perineural cysts are one of the rarer causes of CES. Presentation In the Perianal region for 24 hours a 62-year-old female with history of rheumatoid arthritis, hip and knee reconstructions, and chronic low back pain were all present with worsening back pain, left leg weakness, and pain for six weeks, as well as bowel/bladder incontinence with decreased sensation. Patients did well at the 2-week follow-up, but they were still 5 weeks post-discharged with increased left leg pain/weakness and genitalia anesthesia. The patient's discomfort in the buttocks and bilateral lower extremities as well as bowel/bladder incontinence two months later, was diminished. With the involvement of the left sciatic foramen and S3 neural foramen, Imaging revealed a massive cystic presacral mass. This is the first reported case of a pudendal tumor causing symptoms that were not related to a herniated disc.
