[Beta-hCG producing urothelial carcinoma of the urinary bladder: a case report].

[Article in Japanese]

Author information

  • 1Department of Urology, NTT West Osaka Hospital.


A 74-year-old man visited our hospital presenting with pollakisuria. Cystoscopy revealed a bladder cancer with necrotic tissue. The patient was initially treated by transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TUR-Bt). Pathologically, the tumor was shown to be a carcinoma of bladder with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) positivity. After TUR-Bt, chemotherapy with M-VAC (methotrexate, vinblastine, adriamycine and cisplatin) was performed. This patient is still alive eight months after resection. To our knowledge, there are 37 cases of beta-hCG-producing urothelial carcinoma of the urinary bladder reported in the Japanese literature.
