Primary Retroperitoneal Mucinous Cystadenoma (PRMC) is a very rare diagnosis. A case of rare PRMC unaffiliated with the ovaries in a reproductive aged woman is reported. The patient had undergone percutaneous drainage five years before, but the mass recurred. The retroperitoneal mass was removed and confirmed by histology to be a benign PRMC. No other intervention was indicated. A diagnosis of PRMC is extremely rare, but very important to diagnose for malignant change is possible. This case shows the typical cantillation of symptoms and a path for recovery. The literature review sheds light on possible etymologies of this rare diagnosis.
