Abstract:A 60-year-old female underwent transurethral resection of superficial grade 2 transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the urinary bladder. Six months later, intravesical Mitomycin C instillation was given following two superficial recurrences. A further recurrence of TCC grade I was resected transurethrally 39 months later. Forty-eight months after the original diagnosis the patient developed an abdominal mass, which turned out to be TCC grade 3 involving the left ovary. She underwent laparotomy which showed a left ovarian mass. Total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy and partial omentectomy were carried out. She developed pelvic metastases 3 months later and died.
