Primary bladder adenocarcinoma (PBA) is rarely seen in the clinical setting at present. Bladder adenocarcinoma has a special biological behavior, as well as high invasive and metastatic potential. In addition, it is very difficult to diagnose PBA at an early stage. Having similar clinical manifestation to urothelial carcinoma and metastatic adenocarcinoma of the bladder, the differential identification and diagnosis have become more complicated. A majority of adenocarcinoma is not sensitive to radiation and chemotherapy, and thus, the prognosis of PBA is generally poorer. Currently, surgery serves as the principal mode of treatment. In this case report, we had observed a PBA case for 1.5 years, and no recurrence and metastasis had been reported.
