In this study, we present a case of a 43-year-old female patient who was admitted to our hospital due to a giant mass on the left buttock. Imaging tests revealed that the mass was a solid-cystic tumor with a large size of 143×430×180 mm, penetrating from the pelvic cavity to the subcutaneous tissue. Pathology tests indicated a metastatic mucinous adenocarcinoma which was most likely of gastrointestinal origin. However, there was no evidence to confirm the existence of malignant changes in the gastrointestinal tract.
