Urethral cancer is a rare disease that affects predominantly males and the black race. The case report refers to a female patient of 75 years who had a history of dysuria and urethral pain. After an investigation with urethrocytoscopy and biopsy, a histopathological diagnosis of villograndular adenocarcinoma was identified. The immunohistochemical study identified the presence of beta-catenin and the absence of CK7 expression. In a literary review, few cases of this particularly histological type where published about the urethra and none of them exhibited the tumor marker CK7 negative.
