Primary adenocarcinoma of the ileum is an uncommon gastrointestinal malignancy, the symptoms of which are often insidious in onset. This case history highlights the previously unreported finding of ileal adenocarcinoma presenting with mucusuria, caused by local invasion of the bladder in a 44-year-old male. A review of the literature is included to highlight the incidence, risk factors, clinical presentation, investigation, and current management of adenocarcinoma of the small bowel.
