Nephrogenic adenoma of the bladder after intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guérin treatment

Urol Int. 2000;64(4):229-32. doi: 10.1159/000030538.


A 60-year-old female patient was subjected to transurethral resection of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder and was given intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guérin treatment for 6 weeks. The control cytoscopy performed after 6 months revealed a polypoid lesion at the trigon and the lesion was resected. The pathological examination of the specimen showed no evidence of cancer but the presence of a metaplastic lesion that was nephrogenic adenoma.
