The tumour was pushing the intestines but appeared not to involve the intestinal lumen. There was tumorous spread also to the soft parts of the buttock in which mucus-like material was detected upon incision. Upon laparotomy, intralesional removal of the tumour was obtained. There was no distinct involvement of the rectum or other parts of the intestine.
