Cystoscopy and transurethral resection is the gold standard for the diagnosis and treatment of bladder tumors. However, bladder perforation is one of the complications of transurethral resection. But the majority of bladder perforation do not require any additional surgical intervention. Serious adverse outcome of bladder perforation are uncommon in the early period. However, the risk still exists,and the urologist should be aware of the possibility of local and/or distant recurrences. Thus, these patients should be more closely followed up compared to those who did not develop perforation. (Bulletin of Urooncology 2014;13:119-121)
