S Katmawi-Sabbagh, M Al-Sudani, R England, S Milkins

Abstract


We report a case of an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the bladder (IMT) in an adult male who presented with recurrent hematuria. He required partial cystectomy which revealed perivesical fat infiltration. In spite of this, the tumor was categorized as benign and the patient remained symptom- and tumor-free 18 months post-operatively.

Key Words: Myofibroblastic tumor, bladder, IMT
