Malignant neuroendocrine tumour in an adult female diagnosed with Currarino syndrome
Currarino syndrome is a rare, autosomal dominant condition of caudal anomalies, usually diagnosed in childhood. Adult presentation is rare and malignant transformation of the associated presacral mass even more so. We report a case of a 60-year-old female diagnosed with a malignant neuroendocrine tumour in the presacral mass in Currarino syndrome and describe the surgical management and pathological findings.
