CUMPLIDO BURON, José David  and  TORAL PENA, Juan Carlos. Bladder leiomyosarcoma: Partial cystectomy and adjuvant treatment. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.4, pp.320-322. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We report a new case of bladder leiomyosarcoma in an old patient. Methods: We present the case of a 75-year-old man with bladder leiomyosarcoma treated by partial surgery followed by adjuvant treatment. Results: Partial surgery of the primary tumor followed by concomitant chemo-radiotherapy was the approach for this patient. Nowadays, patient is free of tumor and living without any problems. Conclusions: Bladder leiomyosarcoma is an uncommon tumor (only about 1 % of all bladder cancers) treated ba-sically with radical surgery. Nowadays, partial surgery is a usual approach in other tumors and there is a trend toward less aggressive surgery with preservation of function (such as head and neck cancer, bladder cancer).

Keywords : Bladder leiomyosarcoma; Partial cystectomy; Adjuvant radiotherapy.
