We present the case of a 34-year-old woman admitted to the Clinic of Urology with trauma of the lower part of abdomen and hematuria. A total bladder extrophy was shown during diagnostic procedure. In view of the age and mental status of the patient, we decided on bladder removal and urinary diversion according to Bricker.
