Abstract

Endocervicosis of the urinary bladder is a rare benign condition exclusively seen in women, usually of reproductive age. To the best of our knowledge there are only about twenty cases reported so far. It causes non-specific symptoms and is seen as a submucosal lesion on cystoscopy. On histological examination one finds endocervical glands embedded deep within the muscle layers. It can be confused with an adenocarcinoma of the bladder. Unless the correct diagnosis is made these patients can undergo potentially debilitating surgery. As demonstrated in our patient even symptomatic endocervicosis can be managed conservatively.
