Adenocarcinoma of urinary bladder in a 55-year-old female: An unusual case report
Adenocarcinoma of the bladder is an uncommon malignant neoplasm and accounts for fewer than 2% of all the malignant urinary
bladder tumors. It may arise primarily in the bladder or secondarily from a number of other organs. Adenocarcinoma of urinary
bladder can be diagnosed mainly on histopathology and with the aid of immunohistochemistry. We present clinical, imaging,
histopathology, and immunohistochemical findings in a case of primary bladder adenocarcinoma (PBA) in a 55-year-old female.
Complete clinical details along with a panel of antibodies comprising of β-catenin, cytokeratin 20 (CK20), CK7, and CDX2 can be
helpful in distinguishing PBA from metastatic colonic adenocarcinoma.Adenocarcinoma, Bladder, Neoplasm
