Urachal epithelial neoplasms are rare tumors that arise from the vestiges of the urachus. Mucinous cystadenomas are considered as a benign glandular tumors of the urachus. Cystadenomas are commonly found in the ovary, appendix, and pancreas. Mucinous cystadenomas of the urachus are extremely rare in the urachus, and only nine cases reported so far. We reported the 10th case of Mucinous cystadenomas of the urachus detected incidentally at the time of diagnostic laparoscopy for investigation of genitourinary tuberculosis.
