Keywords: Urachus adenocarcinoma
Urachal carcinoma is an extremely rare tumor, comprising 0.17-0.34% of all bladder tumors. Most of the histhopathological diagnosis is adeno carcinoma in this group of tumour. A 28-year-old woman patient complaining of macrohematuria was admitted to our institute. She has a history of left nephrectomy because of vesicourethral reflux and nonfunctional kidney. Ultrasonography, computed tomography and cystoscopy demonstrated a tumor at the bladder dome. Transurethral resection was performed. Adenocarcinoma was determined at the hystopathologic examination of the specimen. After distant metastases scanning, radical systectomy and urinary diversion operation was performed. Uracil-tegafur and carboplatin combination regimen was administered as an adjuvan treatment. Patient is alive and disease free for 9 months when this case was reported. This case, because of younger age and lack of distant metastases at the time of the diagnosis, is being reported.
