Urethral recurrence arising from a primary colorectal adenocarcinoma is rare. Here, we report a case of urethral recurrence of sigmoid colon cancer, which developed after cysto-prostato-sigmoidectomy for sigmoid colon cancer invading the bladder. The patient underwent urethrectomy successfully and is currently tumor-free. Surgeons who follow patients with colorectal cancer invading the bladder should be aware of this case. The early detection of recurrence improves the chances for disease-free survival.
