A 55-year-old female was admitted to Ogikubo Hospital for severe anemia and prolapse of a tumor from the anus, which had developed over 2 years. Rectal examination revealed a giant soft tumor. Endoscopic study revealed a lobulated giant tumor with a granular surface. Gastrografin-enema study showed a giant tumor, which was full of the rectum. Pathological examination showed a well differentiated carcinoma. No other prominent metastatic lesions were demonstrated. The transanal diagnostic resection of rectal cancer was performed in October 2010. This correct diagnosis showed both well differentiated adenocarcinoma and intramucosal carcinoma. We therefore recommend that a tumor of the lower rectum should undergo a diagnostic excision by means of either a local excision, ESD or TEM.
