The overall 5-year survival of patients with urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UC) is about 78%; however, there are some rare subtypes. One of these is the lipoid cell subtype, which bears a very poor prognosis. Another rare disease entity with a poor prognosis is metastasis to the lower gastrointestinal tract in the form of secondary linitis plastica of the rectum. We describe an extremely rare and unique case of rectal linitis plastica secondary to the rare lipoid cell variant of UC.
