Because paragangliomas of the urinary bladder are extremely rare and difficult to diagnose, histological evaluation is sometimes the sole leading indication for diagnosis. We present a case of an adult woman with paraganglioma of the urinary bladder who presented with a single episode of hematuria and severe hypertensive crisis during its transurethral resection and whose diagnosis was only confirmed after histological analysis of a transurethral resection specimen, which was later treated with open radical cystectomy and Studer Ileal orthotopic neobladder.
