We hereby report a case of a child who presented with abdominal distension and urinary retention. Radiological investigations and exploratory laparotomy revealed a cystic mass in the sacral region pushing the urinary bladder anteriorly and upwards. Histopathological examination revealed neuroglial elements. Neuroglial cysts are uncommon outside the central nervous system and this is the first report of its occurrence in abdomen and pelvis.
