A previously healthy 44-year-old male was admitted with the chief complaint of intermittent gross hematuria. On initial ultrasonographic and CT examination, a grossly protruding intravesical tumor was noted and, under the impression of a malignant bladder tumor, transurethral resection was performed. The histological findings were spindle cells with elongated cytoplasm with rare mitotic figures distributed in myxoid stroma, consistent with diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor of the bladder. The benign nature of this tumor warrants conservative surgical management, usually consisting of transurethral resection or partial cystectomy. No reports of metastasis have been reported following complete excision. Therefore, any suspicion and recognition of this entity is imperative to avoid performing an irreversible radical procedure.
