Abstract

We report on the long-term followup of a young woman after total extirpation of the urinary tract for panurothelial cancer with subsequent continent urinary diversion and renal transplantation. If a patient is willing to accept the associated risks, the staged procedure can be a highly satisfactory treatment option. Life-long close surveillance is critical for the success of this concept.
