ARNAEZ DE LA CRUZ, Marta; FRIAS SANCHEZ, Zoraida; PANTOJA GARRIDO, Manuel  and  GOMEZ-CORONADO VINUESA, José Antonio. Currarino Syndrome as a Rare Disease in the Differential Diagnosis of Oncological Adnexal Pathology. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2017, vol.43, n.4, pp. 77-83. ISSN 1561-3062.

Currarino Syndrome is defined as the presence of a characteristic triad that associates anal stricture, sacrococcygeal malformation and presacral mass defines this syndrome. The scarce symptomology, also characterized by nonspecific symptoms, conditions that in many cases the diagnosis is made in adulthood and can be confused with gynecological pathologies. The diagnosis is made by imaging tests, fundamentally the NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance). The main treatment is the surgical excision of the mass presacra together with the symptomatic treatment of the rest of symptoms. We present the case of a 20-year-old patient with chronic constipation and abdominal pain that is referred to Gynecology due to the presence of a mass that is supposed to be adnexal. After the study of this patient is diagnosed a meningocele, associated with partial sacral agenesis and anal stricture, triad that defines Currarino Syndrome.

Keywords : Currarino syndrome; anorectal malformation; meningocele; presacral mass; ovarian mass.
