Pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferation (PMP) of the bladder is a rare, benign, and proliferative lesion of the submucosal stroma. We report a 38-year-old female patient who was initially diagnosed with urothelial carcinoma of the urinary bladder under intravenous pyelography. Bladder tumor was resected by the transurethral method, and pathology disclosed a picture cqmpatible with pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferation. However, local recurrence was found 2 months later, and tumor resection was performed again. The patient has been followed-up at our outpatient department for a year without any evidence of recurrence.
