Abstract

Carcinoma in situ of the urinary bladder may develop in patients followed after transurethral resection of low-grade papillary bladder carcinoma. In principle, the former lesion has a good prognosis and needs only, simple resection while the latter has a bad prognosis and requires aggressive therapy (radiotherapy and removal of the bladder). Therefore it is often of paramount clinical importance to establish this detoriation. In this paper is reported how histomorphometry and cytomorphometry can, in a quantitative way, express this shift.

Keywords : bladder carcinoma, cytomorphometry, histomorphometry
