CALLEJA ESCUDERO, Jesús; MULLER ARTEAGA, Carlos; TORRECILLA GARCIA- RIPOLL, Juan Ramón y PASCUAL. Pelvic recurrence after radical cystectomy for bladder cancer. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.3, pp.258-261. ISSN 0004-0614.
OBJECTIVES: We report the case of a male patient who had undergone radical cystectomy and orthotopic neobladder for bladder cancer presenting with local recurrence eight months later. METHODS: Diagnostic tests included CT scan and ultrasound guided transrectal biopsy. RESULTS: With the diagnosis of local recurrence he underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy. CONCLUSIONS: The pelvic recurrence of transitional cell carcinoma after radical cystectomy is rare and prognosis is poor. It is frequently associated with advanced tumor stage. It should be treated by a multidisciplinary approach.
