Signet ring cell carcinoma of urachus is a very rare tumour. It generally presents as a high grade, high stage tumour and in most of the cases it has regional or distant metastasis at the time of presentation. It is known to have a uniformly poor prognosis. We present here a very interesting and rare case report of signet ring cell carcinoma of urachus in a 61-year-old male who presented with irritative lower urinary tract symptoms and pain abdomen. High index of suspicion led to the early diagnosis and timely surgical intervention. The patient is doing well on follow-up.
