LARA, Concepción et al. Papillary urothelial carcinoma of the urachus. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.9, pp.914-916. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objetive: Persistence of a patent urachus is a relatively rare occurrence; however; the persistence of urachal remnants is common. The pathologic lesions of the urachus include benign and malignant neoplasms. The majority of malignant urachal neoplasms are adenocarcinomas. Methods and results: We report a case of papillary urothelial carcinoma of urachus in a 73-year-old woman. The patient was treated with complete surgical extirpation and partial cystectomy.  ConclusiOCLUSION: The recognition of urachal remnants as vestigial structures and pathologic lesions of the urachus is important.

Keywords : Urachus; Papillary urothelial carcinoma.
