PASCUAL MATEO, Carlos et al. Idiopathic local bladder amyloidosis. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.3, pp.253-255. ISSN 0004-0614.
OBJECTIVE: To report one case of primary bladder amyloidosis. METHODS: We studied a male patient with asymptomatic hematuria by means of transurethral resection. RESULTS: Pathologic features were consistent with amyloidosis of the bladder wall. We cannot prove either sites of amyloid deposits or an etiology for this disease. CONCLUSIONS: Local idiopathic bladder amyloidosis is a very rare disease and the most common presenting symptom is painless hematuria. It may be difficult to differentiate between this disease and a urothelial bladder neoplasia.
