We report the clinical presentation, histological findings and management of a 49-year-old female patient with non-muscle-invasive clear cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder. In the literature, there are only seven such case reports. We feel that transurethral resection of the bladder tumour followed by close cystoscopy surveillance is a suitable management for non-muscle-invasive clear cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder.
