|Abstract:||29歳女に初発した膀胱癌で,頻回に再発を繰り返すうちにgrade 1からgrade 3へのgrade-upをきたし膀胱全摘を施行した1例|
We report a case of superficial bladder cancer in a young female, with grade-up tumor after frequent recurrences. A 29-year-old woman complained of gross hematuria on April 25, 1991. Cystoscopic examination revealed a papillary pedunculated tumor and transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TUR-BT) was performed. Pathological examination showed transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) pT1 grade 1. In spite of prophylactic therapy, such as intravesical instillation of anticancer drugs and radiochemohyperthermia, she suffered frequent recurrences. At the 6th recurrence, the tumor deteriorated to grade 3 on September 2, 1992. Total cystectomy was done on February 15, 1993 because of uncontrollable bleeding from bladder cancer. Convalescence was uneventful, and no evidence of recurrence was present 2.8 years postoperatively.
