Abstract

YAMAMOTO C, Masami et al. DIAGNÓSTICO INCIDENTAL DE TUMOR VESICAL POR ECOGRAFÍA GINECOLÓGICA TRANSVAGINAL. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2010, vol.75, n.1, pp.54-57. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262010000100009.

We present a clinical case of a 60 year-old patient, who concurs to the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of the Padre Hurtado Hospital under the suspect of a uterine-cervical myoma. A transvaginal ultrasonography was performed which incidentally revealed a bladder tumor which was solid, vascularized, clearly inside of the bladder and attached to the bladder mucosa. The definitive urological study was compatible with a transitional cells papillary carcinoma. The woman did not refer hematuria spontaneously. The finding allowed an unusual diagnosis in an ultrasound aimed for different purposes, which underlines the potential use of this method in other pelvic organs.

Keywords : Transvaginal ultrasonography; diagnosis; bladder tumor; bladder cancer.
