This is the case of glandular cystitis a uncommon disease generally asymptomatic consisted of a proliferative disorder of glands producing mucus within mucosa and submucosa of vesical urinary epithelium. Chronic irritation is the risk factor more significant in its appearance. Course to malignancy (adenocarcinoma) is exceptional and occur in case of persistence of the predisposition factor. To made diagnosis it is necessary the clinical, radiological and histological examination. This case undergoes a vesical echography noting a 3 cm small tumor in vesical fundus and a biopsy by cystoscopy after a total resection. Diagnosis was confirmed and treatment was essentially surgical. Annual surveillance by cystoscopy with vesical biopsies is necessary in these cases. The progressive way is rarer and incapacitant since a wide resection of lesions is essential.
