Carcinomas of the bladder that resemble clear cell carcinoma of mullerian type are rare. Whether such neoplasms 1) arise from mullerian elements in the bladder and are histogenetically identical to the female genital tract cancer, 2) are a peculiar variant of vesical adenocarcinoma of nonmullerian derivation, or 3) represent a peculiar morphologic expression of transitional cell (urothelial) carcinoma with gland differentiation is often uncertain. We reviewed the clinical, conventional… CONTINUE READING
