[A case of synchronous double primary cancers of prostate, and bladder in a hemodialysis patient: a case report].

[Article in Japanese]

Author information

The Department of Urology, Sumitomo Hospital.


A 60-year-old male, who had been maintained on hemodialysis for 4 years, visited our hospital to receive living renal transplantation. He complained of macrohematuria, and preoperative examination showed elevation of psostate specific antigen (PSA). Cystoscopy revealed papillary tumors on the right lateral bladder wall. Transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TUR-Bt) was performed and histopathological examination showed transitional cell carcinoma, G2, pTa. The histologic diagnosis of the transrectal needle prostate biopsy specimen was moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma. Combined androgen blockade as a neoadjuvant therapy and radical prostatectomy were performed. A case of synchronous double primary cancers, comprised of adenocarcinoma of the prostate and transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary blader in a hemodialysis patient has never been previously reported in the Japanese literature.
