Abstract :

BACKGROUND: Urinary bladder cancer is second most common cancer after prostate cancer in the genitourinary system. Urothelial Carcinoma is the commonest tumour type accounting for 90% of all primary tumours of the bladder Histopathological analysis of cystoscopic bladder biopsy and Transurethral resection of the bladder tumour (TURBT) material are the mainstay for cancer diagnosis. This study was aimed to determine the frequency of different types of neoplastic lesions of the urinary bladder and to determine the grade and stage of urothelial tumours. MATERIAL METHOD: The study was carried out in the Department of Pathology, Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Ranchi from January 2018 to June 2020 and included 30 cases of cystoscopic biopsies and TURBT specimens. RESULTS: Out of 30 cases of neoplastic lesions, majority were of high grade papillary urothelial carcinoma (n=14, 46.67%) followed by low grade papillary urothelial carcinoma (n=9, 30%), 3 cases (10%) were of PUNLMP, 2 cases (6.66%) of papilloma and 1 (3.33%) case each of moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma and extra nodal NHL. The most common age group was 41–50 years and 51–60 years with 9 (30%) cases each. Muscle invasion was seen only in high grade papillary urothelial carcinomas. CONCLUSION: High–grade urothelial carcinomas with lamina propria and muscle invasion are the most common neoplastic lesion of urinary bladder with significant morbidity and mortality. Muscle invasion and grading, as per TNM staging, are valuable prognostic factors.
