Urachal carcinoma is a rare, non-urothelial carcinoma that represents less than one percent of all bladder cancers. We present the case of a 58-year-old man who presented with the acute onset of painless hematuria. Cystoscopy revealed a bladder mass, and subsequent biopsy of a liver mass confirmed the diagnosis of metastatic urachal adenocarcinoma. The patient initially underwent a chemotherapeutic regimen of 5-fluorouracil, leucovorin, gemcitabine, and cisplatin (GEM-FLP) given every four weeks. Our case illustrates the importance of recognizing and diagnosing urachal carcinoma correctly since the therapeutic options differ compared to traditional urothelial cancers.
