Abstract

Primary bladder diverticulae are rare anomalies of the bladder. They usually present with recurrent urinary tract infections and dysuria. We present a case of retrovesical diverticulum, which presented with urinary retention behaved like a case of posterior urethral valves. A high index of suspicion and a well performed micutrating cystourethrogram helps in clinching the diagnosis. Excision of these diverticulae with or without ureteric reimplant is curative in most cases.
