Superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder associated with mucosal involvement of the prostatic urethra: results of treatment with intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin.

Intravesical Pasteur strain bacillus Calmette-Guerin was used to treat 8 patients with mucosal transitional cell carcinoma of the prostatic urethra associated with superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. Complete initial response in the prostatic urethra was obtained in 7 of the 8 patients. Two patients had progression of disease during intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin therapy (1 in the prostate and 1 in the bladder) and they received further surgical therapy. Of the 6 complete responders 1 patient had invasive ureteral, vesical and prostatic tumor 15 months after bacillus Calmette-Guerin therapy, and he underwent nephroureterectomy and cystoprostatourethrectomy. Two patients required additional transurethral therapy for recurrent superficial tumors in the bladder but they have shown no evidence of recurrence in the prostatic urethra. Three patients have remained free of disease at 8 to 36 months. Before radical cystoprostatourethrectomy and urinary diversion are recommended, our study supports a course of bacillus Calmette-Guerin therapy as initial treatment for patients with superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder associated with mucosal involvement of the prostatic urethra.[1]
