An unusual case of pelvic abscess from prostate and seminal vesicles, after 3 years and 3 months from abdominoperineal amputation for rectal cancer, in 47-year-old man, is presented. The abnormal symptoms (no leukocytosis, no fever, no dysuria) and the irregular margins of the mass capsule at CT examination suggested a surgical approach, in order to exclude recurrence of rectal cancer. After this experience, the conclusion was drawn that percutaneous treatment ultrasound or CT guided would have been better.
