The urinary bladder occupies the deep pelvic cavity and is well protected from the bacin: this is the reason why it can rarely be traumatized. Anyways it could suffer traumas, which can cause extraperitoneal and intraperitoneal ruptures. A classification of traumas that can injure the urinary bladder and the treatments of these lesions are presented. A clinical case personal observed regarding a 78 year-old female patient is described. An accidental fall and direct trauma in the hypogastrium caused a rupture of her urinary bladder. In this case, the patient was anuric, though the macrohematuria and microhematuria can be present in the 85% of the urinary bladder lesions. This is an interesting case since it deals with a urinary bladder wall rupture, due to a ''trivial'' trauma on the bladder.
