Clinical Stage T1 micropapillary urothelial carcinoma presenting with metastasis to the pancreas
Urology. 2012 Feb;79(2) :e9-10
AbstractMicropapillary carcinoma of the bladder is an extremely aggressive variant of urothelial carcinoma. Radical cystectomy is the standard treatment for all patients, including those with nonmuscle-invasive disease. We present a patient diagnosed with clinical Stage T1 micropapillary carcinoma of the bladder who was found to have a 2-cm metastasis to the head of the pancreas. To our knowledge, this case represents the first report of a solitary metastatic urothelial carcinoma to the pancreas.
