LYMPHOEPITHELIOMA-LIKE CARCINOMA OF THE URINARY BLADDER ASSOCIATED WITH SCHISTOSOMIASIS: A CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE.

Abstract

Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma is an undifferentiated carcinoma with histological features similar to undifferentiated, non-keratinizing carcinoma of the nasopharynx. Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the urinary bladder is uncommon with a reported. incidence of 0.4% -1.3% of all bladder cancers. This case describes an 80 years old Egyptian male patient presented with recurrent hematuria and necroturia. Cystoscopy revealed a tumor involving the left lateral and the posterior wall of the urinary bladder. The patient underwent transurethral resection of the bladder tumor. Pathological examination showed muscle invasive lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma associated with schistosomiasis of the urinary bladder. To the best of our knowledge the association of schistosomiasis with lymphoepithelioma-like bladder cancer was not described in the literature before this case report.
