Abstract

Abstract: We report here a case of rupture of a substitute urinary bladder due to a relapse of bladder cancer detected incidentally on a bone scan. The radionuclides used in bone scans accumulate in the bone and are excreted in the urine. Incidental detection of rupture of a substitute urinary bladder may lead to appropriate intermediate neobladder repair.
