Since paragangliomas of the urinary bladder are rare and not easily recognised, histological examination is often the only leading key to diagnosis. We report on a patient with a paraganglioma of the urinary bladder. Although the patient presented with classical signs and symptoms, these were only appreciated after histological examination of a transurethral resection specimen had elucidated the correct diagnosis.
