MARTIN MARTIN, S. et al. Vesical hemangioma. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.10, pp.1172-1174. ISSN 0210-4806.

Bladder hemangiomas are mesenquimal tumors, generally benign and of difficult diagnosis, representing only 0.6 % primary bladder tumors. Fundamental diagnosis is histological, since imaging test can’t differenciate this from other bladder tumors. We present a case of a 60-year-old male who came to our service with macroscopic hematuria. RTU of one blue mass in the bladder was performed and the histological examination showed to be cavernous hemangioma. A review of literature was realized, commenting on the most typical clinical aspects, the diagnostic methods and the last therapeutic techniques in this type of lesions.

Keywords : Hemangioma; Bladder; Urinary Tract; Resection.
