Prostatic utricle cyst is a rare congenital anomaly. Symptomatic cysts require treat­ment. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice, but is challenging due to close prox­imity to vas deferens, ejaculatory ducts, bladder, prostate, rectum and pelvic nerves. Complications include rectal injury, ureteral injury, impotence, infertility and faecal incontinence. We here report a rare complication in which bladder was accidentally re­moved during laparoscopic excision of prostatic utricle cyst. To best of our knowledge such a complication has never been reported previously. We also describe the possible cause of this accident and suggest ways to prevent this disastrous complication.
