A case is described of neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia in intravesical colonic mucosa, implanted previously during augmentation cystoplasty. The patient was a 28 year old man born with posterior urethral valves, a non-functioning right kidney, and a poorly functioning dilated left kidney. The hyperplasia consisted of pure neuroendocrine acini and tubules within the lamina propria, separate from the normal intestinal glands. Adjacent intraepithelial colonic neuroendocrine cells were increased… CONTINUE READING
