GARCIA TORRELLES, Marta et al. Bladder leiomyosarcoma: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.9, pp.908-910. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objetive: We report a new case of bladder leiomyosarcoma in a young female patient. We review its features and different treatment options. Methods: The patient underwent neoadyuvant chemotherapy and surgical excision. Results: A partial response was achieved with neoadyuvant chemotherapy and remains still alive 60 moths after radical cystectomy. Conclusion: Despite the poor prognosis of this disease, multimodal treatment may improve results. Neoadyuvant chemotherapy and subsequent radical excision could be a good combination therapy for these aggressive tumors.
