The posterior pararenal space is the smallest and most clinically insignificant portion of the retroperitoneum.
It is filled with fat, blood vessels, and lymphatics, but contains no major organs.
posteriorly: bound by transversalis fascia
medially: bound by fusion of the posterior renal and transversalis fasciae with muscular fasciae
inferiorly: opens into the pelvis
It is rarely subject to involvement in disease processes except for when the spread is from adjacent structures.
