Urothelial carcinoma is the most discussed form of bladder cancer. However, there are also other histological subtypes, such as adenocarcinoma, which have different presentations, treatment strategies, and prognosis. Primary adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder can be classified as urachal adenocarcinoma and nonurachal adenocarcinoma. The average age of patients with urachal adenocarcinoma is about one decade younger than those with the nonurachal subtype, and the prognosis of urachal adenocarcinoma is better. Complete surgical resection is the standard treatment, but adjuvant therapy is always needed due to the high relapse rate. Due to the rareness, research about this malignancy is limited. Herein, we report two cases with different primary adenocarcinomas of the urinary bladder and perform a literature review.
