Pelvic exenteration (PE) or pelvectomy is defined as radical “En Bloc” resection of two or more contiguous pelvic organs, followed
by reconstruction or diversion of visceral functions.
PE was first reported by Brunschwig in 1948 as a particular and radical surgery for advanced and recurrent cancer and considered as "the most radical surgical attack so far described for pelvic cancer". Its broad indications are curative strategies discussed by a multidisciplinary team; PE must be done “En Bloc” with negative margin status.
We report a case of a rectal mucinous carcinoma in a 38 year-old man. The patient benefited radical treatment through total PE with terminal colostomy and urinary diversion (ureterostomy by Bricker's method) with good post-operative outcomes.
