Spontaneous rupture of urinary bladder due to chronic retention secondary to symplastic bladder leiomyoma: A rare tumor presenting as a rarer surgical emergency


Author(s): Dr. Abhishek Shetty and Dr. Riddhima Dubhashi

Abstract: Introduction: The diagnosis of Spontaneous Rupture of Urinary Bladder is often delayed if not missed which leads to increased mortality from this condition. Case report: In this paper the cause of spontaneous bladder rupture was chronic retention which was due to a rare bladder tumor. Discussion: Leiomyomas form less than 0.5% of all bladder tumors. Spontaneous bladder rupture leads to peritonitis and hence a high mortality rate. Urinary ascites is the cause for deranged urea and creatinine despite a normal kidney function. Conclusion: Diagnosis of spontaneous rupture of urinary bladder needs a high index of suspicion and its management should include early operative intervention.
