AbstractWe report a case of urachal actinomycosis that presented with a progressively enlarging infraumbilical mass associated with umbilical discharge. Computed tomography revealed an extraperitoneal mass involving the dome of the bladder. The possible diagnosis included a malignant urachal neoplasm or chronic inflammatory mass. Partial cystectomy and excision of the mass was performed. The pathologic examination revealed actinomycosis. The patient was treated with a 6-month course of antibiotics. No recurrence was noted 1 year postoperatively. Copyright © 2001 Elsevier Science Inc.
