The increased risk of developing adenocarcinoma in the sigmoid colon after ureterosigmoidostomy has been acknowledged for some time. Development of adenocarcinoma in colonic conduits isolated from the fecal stream is rare. We report a case of adenocarcinoma arising in a sigmoid conduit that probably represents a metachronous adenocarcinoma of the colon.
