Abstract

In our experience it is rare to find ileal metastasis of bladder tumour in the absence of clinical and paraclinical signs signalling its presence. In a male patient of 73 years with previous diagnosis of infiltrating bladder tumour, 2 nodules of a whitish colour were found intraoperatively in the thickness of the ileal wall; on histological examination these formations were found to be secondary localisations of the bladder neoplasm. This finding may be considered unusual as we have not found another such description, with the same characteristics, in the available literature. In our opinion the most credible pathogenic hypothesis is that of hematogenic diffusion; however, we cannot exclude a lymphatic reflux from the mesenteric lymphnodes.
