The physical examinations by laparoscopy revealed a mass measuring 74×62 in posterior uterus. The patient underwent surgery and the cyst was completely excised. The patient discharged after five days and no postoperative complications were reported in the follow up. Pathological results reported dermoid cyst. Conclusion: Surgery is the main treatment of retrorectal lesions and tumors.
