Infected urachal cysts are a rare clinical manifestation in adults. We present the case of an adult male patient with an infected urachal cyst, discuss the embryology, clinical presentation, diagnostics and the therapeutic procedure. A high index of suspicion is necessary to diagnose this condition with unspecific clinical features. Ultrasound and MRI are useful in making the diagnosis. Surgery continues to be the therapeutic procedure of choice.
