An unusual case of cancer of the urachal remnant following repair of bladder exstrophy.

AbstractINTRODUCTION:
We report the first case of cancer of the urachal remnant following repair of bladder exstrophy, in a renal transplant recipient.
METHOD:
A retrospective review of this clinical case and the associated literature were performed.
CONCLUSION:
This unusual case highlights two very rare entities. Bladder exstrophy has an incidence of 1 in 50,000 newborns, whereas urachal cancer accounts for less than 1% of all bladder tumours.
