[A case of paraganglioma of the urinary bladder].

Abstract

A very rare case of paraganglioma of the bladder is reported. The patient was a 51-year-old man. He was admitted to our hospital on June 18th, 1981, with the complaint of gross hematuria. He had no attack of hypertension and we could not find in him any parasympathetic symptom except hematuria. Upon urological examination, he was suspected to have stage B cancer of bladder. He received partial cystectomy with uneventful course during the operation on June 30th, 1981 and was discharged on the 15th postoperative day. The postoperative histological diagnosis was paraganglioma of the urinary bladder. He was confirmed to have normal levels of catecholamine and its metabolites in the urine after 4 months postoperatively. At present, he is asymptomatic.
