Abstract

Pelvic retroperitoneal tumors pose a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge due to their rarity, late presentation, and complex anatomical location in the retroperitoneum. This article reviews the diagnosis and management of retroperitoneal tumors in the pelvis, and highlights the implications of imaging on management. This study was conducted in a tertiary care hospital of western Gujarat over a period of 2 years. We reviewed the various retroperitoneal masses in pelvis in pediatric age group and then discuss potential diagnostic and therapeutic challenges.
