Defunctionalized colon is not listed in literature as a complication of colorectal surgery. Moreover, to our knowledge there is no literature describing defunctionalized colon from a prior colectomy for Colo Rectal Cancer (CRC) masquerading as an intra-abdominal cyst as a potential complication of colorectal surgery. We describe the diagnosis and management of a 46-year-old patient with a recurrent symptomatic colonic cyst in this report.
