CANOVAS IVORRA, José Antonio et al. Inverted papilloma: Report of two cases and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.6, pp.681-684. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Inverted papilloma is a rare polypoid lesion of the urothelium, known as a different entity since 1963. Not many more than 100 cases have been published. Although its malignant potential is still unknown, several scientific publications have noted it. Methods: We report to cases of inverted papilloma and perform a detailed bibliographic review. Results: Both patients were diagnosed by the Pathology Department and entered periodic follow-up visits, being free of recurrence at 24 and 18 months respectively. Conclusions: The possibility that inverted papilloma is a lesion with malignant potential should be considered in every case, and we suggest that patients with this diagnosis should enter a follow-up protocol like any bladder neoplasia.

Keywords : Inverted papilloma; Urinary bladder; Transurethral resection.
