Abstract

Clear cell adenocarcinoma arising in the lower urinary tract is unusual. We report a case of clear cell adenocarcinoma of the bladder in a 54-year-old male. Cystoscopic examination revealed a tumour arising from the dome of the urinary bladder. Histologically, the tumour was chiefly composed of tubulocystic and papillary glands lined by glycogen-rich, cubical or hobnail cells with clear to eosinophilic cytoplasm. The tumour infiltrated into the inner muscular layer. The patient was treated by partial cystectomy.
