Retrorectal cyst-hamartoma, an uncommon lesion, arises from hindgut embryonic remnants and may be associated with sacral anomalies. Such a lesion is presacral, multicystic, and lined with glandular or transitional epithelium. Malignant transformation of these lesions has been reported. We describe the clinical, pathologic, and imaging findings in an infant.
