Carcinoma developing at the Ureterosigmoidostomy (US) anastomosis is a complication known to us. Patients generally present late because of non specific symptoms like loin pain, loss of appetite and weight loss. Colonoscopy and abdominal imaging studies are recommended for early detection and prompt management of these malignancies. We report a case of mucin secreting adenocarcinoma of the colon, 26 years after US.
