A case of retrovesical squamous cell carcinoma associated with acquired toxoplasmosis is presented. To date only six cases with retrovesical carcinoma have been reported in the literature. Although it is difficult to make a preoperative diagnosis of this rare neoplasm, transrectal longitudinal ultrasonography was diagnostically valuable, and serial measurements of serum squamous cell antigen (SCC-Ag) were useful for monitoring the clinical course.
