Metastasis to skeletal muscle from carcinoma of the bladder is extremely rare. In this report, we reviewed the literature and presented a 67-year-old man who had metastasis in left vastus medialis muscle three months after a radical cystectomy with ureterocutaneostomy operation due to invasive bladder carcinoma. Patient died at postoperative 7th month due to sepsis and metabolic problems.
