Abstract

Primary Adenocarcinoma of Bladder is an extremely rare and very aggressive form of cancer that forms about 1% of bladder cancer. It is suggested that it arises from intestinal metaplasia of the urothelium.1 It has a very aggressive course and a very poor response to the chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The curative therapy remains surgery if the cancer is confined to the bladder with no metastasis exist.2 We are presenting a case of an 83yr old male who was evaluated for gross hematuria and underwent TURBT which showed an adenocarcinoma of the bladder. No evidence of metastasis was found.
