Urachal carcinoma is a rare malignancy constituting <1% of bladder malignancies. The disease arises from a malignant transformation of rests of enteric epithelium in the urachus. Most common sites of metastasis are lung, liver, and bone. We report a postoperative case of urachal carcinoma presenting with distant metastasis to lung and skip lesions in colon. As both urachal and colon carcinoma share common histopathological features, most of the literature suggested using chemotherapy regimens similar to those recommended for colon malignancies. There are no randomized trials till date regarding the management of urachal adenocarcinomas except for the primary treatment being surgery.
