Recurrent transitional cell carcinoma arising within an ileal conduit following cystectomy for malignant disease is rare. We report on a case in which such a recurrence occurred, well away from the ureteroileal anastomosis and without coexisting upper tract involvement. The possible pathogenesis of these recurrences is discussed and the existing literature reviewed. Although uncommon, the possibility of recurrence within a conduit should be considered in any patient who presents with haematuria following a resection for malignant disease.
