  • A 54-year-old man presented with left-sided sciatica.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine revealed an inhomogeneous presacral mass. The
    lesion appeared iso- to hyperechoic with ultrasonography.
  • Laboratory testing did not reveal any abnormalities.
  • Contrast-enhanced CT of the abdomen and pelvis was performed to further investigate the
    mass.
