Urology. 1993 Jan;41(1):30-3. doi: 10.1016/0090-4295(93)90239-7.


Three cases of signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma of the bladder are presented: a primary vesical adenocarcinoma, a metastatic one, and a signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma of the urachus. A review of the literature found 69 additional reports of primary signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma, 20 of urachal signet-ring carcinoma, and 4 of the metastatic variety. The pathogenesis, clinical, and histologic findings, prognosis, and management are discussed.
