Figure 3

Abdominal CT on day 4 for evaluation of progressive abdominal distention. (a) Axial CT slice through the lower pelvis shows hypoplasia of the sacrum and an indeterminate presacral mass extending into the spinal canal (arrow). The mass contains heterogeneous material and air and the contents have a similar appearance to the fecal material in the bowel. (b) Sagittal abdominal CT reformat again shows the presacral mass in continuity with the sacral canal having a few fecaliths. Notice few fecaliths (arrow) and air (arrowhead) in the spinal canal, suggesting communication with the anal canal.
