Congenital bladder diverticulum is an uncommon anomaly of the bladder. Patients can present with urinary infection, heamaturia, and/or urinary obstruction. We report the case of a seven-year-old boy who presented with painful micturition and terminal haematuria due to a congenital bladder diverticulum. Robot-assisted laparoscopic diverticulectomy was performed. The patient had an uneventful recovery. We describe the points of technique pertinent to the procedure.
