BACKGROUND: During embryonal period, complete obliteration of the urachus at the umbilicus and incomplete closure at the bladder level are the cause of vesicourachal diverticulum. This abnormality is a rare finding that is usually discovered incidentally during radiological evaluation. Occasionally, stones have been detected within the diverticulum.
CASE REPORT: We present a case of a vesicourachal diverticulum with calculus diagnosed by multidetector computed tomography and confirmed surgically and histopathologically in a 24-year-old man.
CONCLUSIONS: During the radiological differential diagnosis of abnormalities of abdominal wall and urinary system, consideration of urachal abnormalities is important especially in symptomatic patients.

Keywords: Calculi, multidetector computed tomography, Urachus, Urinary Bladder Diseases
