Case Study
Etiologic factors affecting bladder tumor have been well confirmed and it is widely recognized that carcinogenic substances in urine may play an important role in a pathogenesis. Carcinoma developing in a defunctionalized bladder, although uncommon, does occur. We report a case of a transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) found in a remaining bladder of a male patient and a review of the most relevant literature.
