SOARES, Mário Jorge et al. Bladder adenocarcinoma: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.7, pp.828-831. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Primary bladder adenocarcinoma is a rare entity. We performed a review of the literature on this subject and present a clinical case. Method/Results: A 74 year old female patient presents to the emergency department with complaints of gross hematúria not accompanied by lower urinary tract symptoms. Diagnostic work-up included renal and bladder ultrasound, cistoscopy and abdomino-pelvic C.T. scan. Metastatic disease was excluded. Trans-urethral resection revealed an invasive adenocarcinoma. A gynaecologic origin was excluded by further gynaecologic examination and an anterior pelvic exanteration was performed. The bladder specimen showed primary bladder adenocarcinoma, pT3aN0. At 6 months of follow-up, the patient does not present disease progression or surgical complications. Conclusion: Primary bladder adenocarcinoma is rare. Unlike urothelial carcinoma, it responds poorly to chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Radical Cistectomy offer the best chance of long-term survival.

Keywords : Bladder tumor; Primary adenocarcinoma.
