Abstract

We report a 70-year-old male who presented with gross painless total haematuria associated with persistent left hip pain of one month duration. Computerised tomography of abdomen revealed a mass on the right lateral wall of urinary and abscess like lesion in the left psoas. He underwent transurethral resection of bladder tumour and ultrasonographical guided tru-cut biopsy of psoas lesion. Histopathology confirmed transitional cell carcinoma with metastasis to left psoas muscle. The presentation highlights the clinical and radiological features along with review of literature of rare metastatic site from transitional cell carcinoma of urinary bladde.
