We report a case of pseudosarcomatous fibromyxoid tumor of the bladder in a 23-year-old man with a 2 month history of painless gross hematuria, which was studied by biphasic contrast-enhanced helical CT. CT demonstrated a 2 cm diameter polypoid enhancing mass in the anterior bladder wall. The lesion measured 103 and 91 HU on early and delayed images, respectively. Increased contrast enhancement was attributed to a histologically highly vascular myxoid stroma.
