Abstract

Background: A 32-year-old healthy woman from China was diagnosed with a bladder mass during pelvic ultrasonography, carried out during the work-up of a miscarriage. Cystoscopy by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology confirmed the presence of a bladder mass, after which she was referred to our department for evaluation and management. The patient was asymptomatic at presentation. She denied urologic symptoms and did not have a history of smoking or industrial exposure to carcinogens. Investigations: Laboratory test results and urine studies were unremarkable. Cytology revealed benign cells with numerous micro-organisms. Intravenous pyelography revealed a 1 × 2 cm filling defect in the mid posterior bladder compatible with a mass. There were no upper urinary tract defects. We performed cystoscopy with transurethral resection of the bladder tumor. Diagnosis: Pathology revealed cystitis glandularis. Management: The patient was followed up with repeat cystoscopy after 4 months; there was no evidence of recurrence. She was scheduled for surveillance after a further 3 months, but was lost to follow-up.
