Abstract

Full urinary bladder is prone to intra-peritoneal rupture following blunt abdominal trauma. It is usually diagnosed early due to frank hematuria. Review of literature has revealed few cases of delayed presentation of bladder injury presenting as acute pseudo renal failure. Each of the cases has a pointer towards inherent bladder injury by way of a single episode of hematuria or development of anuria. We present here a case of intra-peritoneal bladder rupture following blunt abdominal injury presenting after four days of injury with abdominal pain without hematuria or anuria. Blood investigations were as in acute renal failure. Only one such case has been reported in literature.
