|Abstract:||A case of xanthogranuloma of the urinary bladder is reported. A 68-year-old man was referred to our hospital for the evaluation of microscopic hematuria. At that time, he did not have an abdominal tumor and ultrasonography showed no abnormality of the kidneys and the bladder wall. Two months later, he was admitted with the chief complaints of perineal discomfort and non tender fist size mass was palpable in the lower abdomen. Ultrasonography, computed tomographic scan and magnetic resonance imaging MRI demonstrated a supravesical mass which was strongly suspected as urachal tumor. Total cystectomy with urachal resection was performed. The histological diagnosis was xanthogranuloma. The patient has been in good health without recurrence, 4 years after surgery. We discuss xanthogranuloma of the urinary bladder in the literature.|
