OBJECTIVE: Literature review of adenocarcinoma of the urachus in connection with two cases recently diagnosed and treated in our center. METHODS/RESULTS: We report 2 cases of urachus Adenocarcinoma treated in our institution, both underwent extended partial cystectomy including excision of the urachus up to the umbilicus. CONCLUSION: Urachal adenocarcinoma is an exceptional tumor, of poor prognosis, the treatment of which is surgical (partial cystectomy), and the main predictors of disease-free survival are the degree of tumor differentiation and the free margins of the surgical specimen.
