Abstract:
Urachal carcinoma is a rare, aggressive malignancy accounting for less than 1% of bladder neoplasms. These tumours are usually adenocarcinomas and occur at the dome or anterior wall of the bladder. They often escape early clinical detection, growing for prolonged periods prior to diagnosis, resulting in local invasion and systemic spread before therapeutic intervention is initiated. We present the case of a recurrent urachal carcinoma in a young female.
