Localized amyloidosis of the bladder is an uncommon disease. As it can be mistaken as a malignant disease, urinary bladder neoplasms should be included as differential diagnosis. And systemic amyloidosis also should be considered because the prognosis of localized amyloidosis is very different from that of systemic amyoidosis. The primary treatment for localized amyloidosis of the bladder is transurethral resection of the mass. And annual cystoscopic evaluation is recommended to detect recurrence. In the current case, the patient underwent transurethral resection of bladder mass twice for 2 years, and supposed to be recurred amyloidosis due to proliferation of residual amyloid. Because localized amylodosis of bladder can be recurred, long-term follow-up is needed after complete resection of the mass. (Korean J Urol Oncol 2011;9:35-38)
