We report on a patient with a long history of rheumatoid arthritis who consulted for intense hematuria that was initially ascribed to carcinoma of the bladder. Subsequent patient evaluation, however, disclosed amyloidosis of the urinary bladder. The literature on amyloidosis of the urinary tract is reviewed. A detailed analysis of the biopsy specimens taken from a lesion that looks like a bladder carcinoma may disclose other pathologies such as amyloidosis of the urinary bladder.
