Transitional cell carcinoma developing in a bladder diverticulum: Early diagnosis by computed tomography

  • J Shah

Abstract

Computed tomography confirmed a left-sided narrow neck urinary bladder diverticulum, with wall thickening, in a 56-year-old man. These findings were initially detected on ultrasonographic investigation. Transitional cell carcinoma was confirmed histologically. There is an increased incidence of neoplastic transformation in urinary bladder diverticuli, and therefore an early search for subtle imaging signs should be implemented
