Abstract

A case of a young man with an acute abdominal condition and hematuria is presented. BUN and SCr levels were markedly elevated. Retrograde cystography revealed intraperitoneal extravasation of contrast material. At exploration, a large intraperitoneal bladder perforation was noted and repaired in two layers. Recovery was uneventful. The presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of spontaneous rupture of the urinary bladder are discussed.
