This is a 50-year-old male with past surgical history of nasal surgery otherwise heathy was presented to the Clinic after diagnosed with rectal neuroendocrine tumor at the distal rectum. Pathologic findings revealed at low power, there are infiltrating nests and cords of tumor cells in a background of dense fibrous stroma. Tumor cells demonstrated eosinophilic cytoplasm and round nuclei and speckled chromatin. The reason for a lesion just sitting on the top of the sphincter muscle and opinion related to possibility of can be achieved surgical clearance from the sphincter muscle, an intersphicteric resection was deciced to perform with robotic technique. In conclusion, this case demonstrates the feasibility of the robotic intersphicteric resection for rectal neuroendocrine tumor. It is useful especially in narrow, difficult, male pelvis. And finally it can provide superior dexterity and maneuverability beyond just its safety.
