BACKGROUND: Bladder diverticula are protrusions of the mucosal and submucosal layers of the bladder through the muscular wall of the bladder. We discuss the identification and management of two unusual presentations of bladder diverticula. CASE: In two cases of bladder diverticula, one presented as pelvic organ prolapse and the other largely replaced the anterior cervix and was incidentally encountered during a loop electrosurgical excision procedure. Both were discovered intraoperatively and repaired surgically. CONCLUSION: Alternatives to pelvic organ prolapse must be in the differential diagnosis when evaluating a patient with complaints of vaginal bulging.
