Abstract
Hemangioma of the urinary bladder is a rare and benign tumor which may be present at any age. Among all kinds of bladder tumors, hemangioma of the bladder constitutes just 0.6 % of them. It consists of numerous proliferative capillaries united with thin-walled, expanded blood-filled vessels that are covered by flat endothelial cells. Here, we present a case of a 60 years old man referred to our hospital with macroscopic hematuria and we discuss hemangioma of the bladder that is the diagnosis we determined after the cystoscopic examination.
