Urothelial carcinoma of bladder in a pediatric patient case report of a rare disease

Bladder Cancer

Aktas E, et al. Urol Case Rep 2020.


Urothelial carcinoma is a very rare malignancy in the pediatric population. In spite of the extremely low amount of published cases, the incidence rate is between 0.4 and 0.1% before the age of 20. Insomuch that only less than 30 cases have been reported in the first decade. Those tumors were mostly solitary, non-invasive, with low-risk of progression and recurrence rate compared to adult-onset form. In this case report, we aim to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of a 10-year-old male patient

with urothelial carcinoma of bladder who admitted to our clinic.
