Abstract

We present the case of a 9 year old boy with hemorrhagic cystitis and urinary clot retention in the setting of chemotherapy refractory pre-B cell acute lymphocytic leukemia. The patient was undergoing palliative care which was complicated by severe discomfort from urinary clot retention. The decision was made to perform a cutaneous vesicostomy for clot removal and urinary drainage given the goals of care. The patient tolerated the procedure well and was comfortable with no further urinary tract symptoms until he expired. Cutaneous vesicostomy should be considered as an effective surgical option for severe clot retention in children.
