Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

Villous adenoma is a benign neoplasia, the appearance of which in the urinary tract is extraordinarily unfrequent. We report a new case recently experienced in our department.

METHODS:

We report the case with its past urologic history, clinical picture, diagnostic tests, and treatment.

RESULTS:

Pathologic report confirmed the diagnosis of bladder villous adenoma, being transurethral resection the only treatment applied to leave the patient disease-free.

CONCLUSIONS:

Prognosis of this kind of neoplasia, which is unfrequent, is excellent; being endoscopic resection curative, with no local or distant progression, except in cases associated with adenocarcinoma foci, in which local recurrence or distant metastasis are possible, and a more aggressive treatment might be indicated.
