Bladder rupture is very rare clinical finding in pediatric age group. This should be suspected in any child who does not pass urine, develops abdominal distension, pain, and tenderness in the lower abdomen after sustaining blunt trauma to the abdomen. Delay in presentation and diagnosis further increases the morbidity and mortality. Isolated bladder rupture is a rare consequence of blunt trauma in the absence of pelvic fracture. We are reporting a rare case with an isolated bladder rupture in which no any other associated injury was present. The patient had presented 24 h after sustaining the injury with clinical features of anuria and peritonitis. Emergency surgery was undertaken to save the child.
