Urinary bladder hemangioma mimicking urachal cancer
Hemangiomas of the urinary bladder are rare and account for 0.6% of all bladder tumors occurring in all ages, but they are even less common during childhood and adolescence.

Published in the journal Urology, the authors present a case of a 17-year-old young man with persistent gross hematuria for 1 month. Computed tomography revealed a 3.6 cm mass on the superior anterior wall of the urinary bladder, which was highly suspected as an urachal tumor.

An en bloc resection of the urachus and bladder tumor was carried out. The pathologic report indicated a cavernous hemangioma of the urinary bladder. No tumor recurrence or bleeding was found during the 2-year follow-up.

Key takeaway:-
Urinary bladder hemangioma is an important differential diagnosis in young patients with hematuria.
