Figure 2: Retrorectal developmental cysts are often multilocular lesions. The tumour 'recurrence' may sometimes due to the missing of one or more separately located cysts during the laparoscopic surgery, which should be more accurately defined as residue of the lesion. (a) Computed tomography scan shows a multilocular developmental cyst. (b) The post-operative pelvic magnetic resonance imaging of patient No. 9 who suffered from tumour 'recurrence' after the surgery. The white arrow shows the residual of a separately lying cyst at the caudal end of the lesion
