Abstract

Urachal carcinoma is a rare and highly aggressive tumor that develop in the urachal remnant. Because of its location and its rarity, the diagnosis of UrC is often difficult. Although surgery is the treatment of choice for UrC, with a high incidence of local recurrence and distant metastasis and therefore the treatment of local recurrence and distant metastasis of UrC following surgery has been a challenge. We review the clinical diagnosis and therapy of UrC and factors related to its prognosis.
