TORRES GOMEZ, Francisco Javier; TORRES OLIVERA, Francisco Javier  and  TORRES GOMEZ, Amelia. Polypoid cystitis associated with glandular cystic cystitis. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.6, pp.692-694. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Polypoid cystitis and intestinal metaplasia are well-known lesions of the bladder. Methods: We report the case of one patient with both lesions identified synchronically in the bladder. Results: Although these lesions are not neoplastic, there are evidences supporting a possible degeneration of the metaplastic epithelium to adenocarcinoma. Conclusions: The diagnosis of both lesions is histological and there are not clinical tests or image studies that could enable identification of the real nature of these lesions.

Keywords : Cystitis; Polypoid; Intestinal metaplasia; Glandular.
