Introduction. Bladder cancer (ВС) is one of the most common malignant tumors of the urinary tract. In recent decades, recurrent BC in the urethra has become increasingly common. Given the rarity of this pathology, it is of clinical interest for oncologists and urologists.

Materials and methods. A clinical case of recurrent bladder cancer in the urethra in a 63-year-old patient is presented. The results of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pelvic organs and external genital organs, as well as the results of computed tomography of the abdominal organs and observation by a hematologist are presented.

Results. For early diagnosis of tumor changes in the urethra in patients with risk factors for the recurrence of BC after cystectomy, careful observation in the form of a cytological study of flushing water from it, performing urethroscopy with ascending urethrography and MRI of the external genital organs is advisable.

Conclusions. This clinical observation demonstrates the importance of assessing the state of the urethra when follow up patients after radical cystectomy for BC.

Conflict of interest. The authors declare no conflict of interest.
