ABSTRACT A 24-yr-old woman presented with gross haematuria and a huge tumour of the right bladder wall. At transurethral resection, a solid tumour was seen covered with normal mucosa. The pathological evaluation revealed a solitary fibrous tumour (SFT) of the urinary bladder. For final treatment, a partial cystectomy was performed; tumour-free margins were ensured by frozen-section analysis. This is the first case in the literature presenting intravesically in a young woman. Due to the difficulty in discriminating between malignant and benign growth pattern of this tumour entity, a regular follow-up after conservative treatment is mandatory.

    ABSTRACT: Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm, most commonly arising from the pleura. It has also been recently described to occur in extrapleural sites. To our knowledge, only 16 cases of SFT have been reported in the urinary bladder to date. We report the clinicopathological features of a vesical SFT occurring in a 60-year-old man who presented a concomitant invasive high-grade urothelial cell carcinoma. No similar association has been found in the accessible literature. The morphologic and immunohistochemical clues leading to the correct diagnosis of SFT have been correlated with the data of the literature, and the differential diagnosis is briefly discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Mesenchymal tumours of the urinary bladder and prostate are infrequent neoplasms. The body of literature is growing with isolated case reports and short series, and the majority of cases are benign neoplasms. Other than stromal tumour of uncertain malignant potential and prostatic stromal sarcoma, both neoplasms derived from the specific prostatic stroma, the mesenchymal neoplasms in these locations are identical to their counterparts seen in other organs. However, the limited amount of tissue generated by biopsy and rarity of mesenchymal lesions in these sites create unique diagnostic difficulties, while correct classification of the neoplasm often bears significant impact on prognosis and therapeutic strategy. In this review we summarise the diagnostic features, focus on the differential diagnosis, and highlight the potential diagnostic pitfalls of mesenchymal tumours of the bladder and prostate.

    ABSTRACT: A 67-year-old man was examined for persistent pain over his lower abdomen and was found to have a large pelvic tumor. During surgery, we detected a 16 × 9 × 9 cm(3) urinary bladder tumor with small intestinal adhesions, and performed partial cystectomy and segmental resection. Histological and immunohistochemical examinations established the diagnosis of malignant solitary fibrous tumor (SFT). Only 10 cases of urinary bladder SFT have been reported in the English literature; our patient is the second one with malignancy and had a longer follow-up period than the other case.
