Synchronous occurrence of urinary bladder carcinoma and gastric carcinoma is very rare. A middle-aged Asian man presented with complaints of hematuria which was diagnosed due to muscle invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma of urinary bladder. Metastatic work-up revealed simultaneous presence of locally advanced gastric adenocarcinoma. He was treated with TURBT for the bladder cancer and was planned for radical gastric resection followed by radiation to urinary bladder and stomach with concurrent chemotherapy. However, due to very advanced nature of the gastric tumor patient was treated only with palliative gastric resection followed by palliative radiation to both urinary bladder and stomach due to his poor performance status. Lack of published English literature and evidence related to such clinical entity made this an extremely rare clinical entity and treatment decision difficult.
