Here, we report a rare case of large ischiorectal fossa (IRF) soft-tissue sarcoma with involvement of the rectum. The patient was operated with laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection and wide local excision of a tumor through the posterior approach. Postoperatively, the patient received adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment and includes resection of surrounding organs to get adequate surgical margins for locally advanced IRF tumors. Laparoscopic approach causes less morbidity and early recovery.
