Intravesical instillation of formalin appears to be a method of choice in the control of massive hematuria following radiation cystitis. It is generally described as a safe, cheap, effective procedure. We report a case of intraperitoneal spillage of formalin and describe the metabolic and extensive medical problems encountered in the four-week period following the incident before the patient's death.
