This is a video case presentation of an 18-year-old male referred with an an incidental finding on CT scan of a 2x4x1 cm retrorectal cystic lesion suggestive of a rectal duplication cyst. In an effort to avoid a coccygectomy, he was offered a transanal endoscopic reaection using the TEO platform. The retrorectal tailgut cyst was excised en-bloc after careful transanal endoscopic dissection off the internal sphincter muscle fibers, levator ani and the rectum, followed by full-thickness suture closure of the rectal defect. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 2 with a postoperative course complicated by readmission for rectal bleeding which resolved without further intervention.
