Abstract

We present a rare case report of a malignant, high-grade, urothelial bladder carcinoma in a 4-year-old boy. The tumor recurred quickly after resection. The recurrence was treated with partial cystectomy plus MVAC (methotrexate, vinblastine, Adriamycin, cisplatin). This is the first reported use of the MVAC regimen for a pediatric bladder tumor.
