A Case of Urinary Bladder Dermoid
International Research Journal of Oncology,
Dermoid cysts can be found at various sites, most common being the ovaries. However, the occurrence of dermoid cysts in the urinary bladder is an extremely rare entity. We report the case of a 54 years female, who came with complaints of white discharge with urine associated with lower abdominal lump and pain. Thorough workup was done but a definitive diagnosis could not be made. Cystoscopy guided bladder diverticulum drainage was done but no improvement was seen. Intraoperatively a mass was seen arising from the urinary bladder amidst a lot of adhesions and pus. Mass was excised and bladder defect was repaired primarily. The specimen turned out to be a dermoid cyst arising from the urinary bladder. The patient is now on followup and has no symptoms. The rarity of such a disease makes the case report worthwhile to be published.
