Abstract

Hutch diverticulum is a congenital diverticulum of the urinary bladder, reported infrequently in children and rare amongst adults. We present a 60-year-old male patient with bilateral Hutch diverticula, detected incidentally during an abdominal ultrasound examination performed for blunt abdominal trauma. This rare case highlights an unusual incidental presentation and opportunity to learn how to differentiate it from acquired bladder diverticula. The available treatment options are also discussed varying from simple follow-up to aggressive surgery.

Keywords
