Author: Pooja Y. Shah, Monika Nanavati, Ravi G. Patel, Hansa M. Goswami
Background: Diseases of the bladder, particularly inflammation (cystitis), constitute an important source of clinical signs and symptoms. Tumors of the bladder are an important source of both morbidity and mortality. Objectives: 1) To study the histopathological features of various lesions in bladder. 2) To study the frequency of different pathological lesions, particularly Papillary Urothelial Neoplasms in urinary bladder. Results: 35 cases of urinary bladder were received. Out of 35 patients, 27 were males and 8 were females with male to female ratio being 3.38:1.The spectrum of pathological lesions included inflammations, metaplastic lesions, cystic lesions and tumors. Out of 35 cases 12(34.28%) were Non neoplastic lesions and 23(65.71%) were Neoplastic lesions. Among the non neoplastic lesions cystitis (41.67%) was the most common finding. Others were non-specific inflammation due to various etiology, hydatid cyst, benign epithelial inclusion cyst and abscess. Most common age groups affected by the neoplastic lesions were 41-50 years and 61-70 years with male to female ratio being 2.29:1. Among the neoplastic lesions 19(82.60%) cases were of urothelial neoplasms, others being Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Poorly Differentiated Carcinoma with Neuroendocrine differentiation and Paraganglioma. Most common Urothelial neoplasm was Non invasive Papillary Urothelial Carcinoma, Low Grade (9 cases). Among all the bladder biopsies received there was no muscle layer in 3 cases (8.3%). Conclusions: Our study has revealed that the bladder tumors are the commonest lesions in the urinary bladder tissues received and Papillary Urothelial Neoplasms were the predominant tumor type.
Keywords: Bladder, Papillary urothelial neoplasms, Paraganglioma.
