Transitional cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis with choriocarcinomatous differentiation. Immunohistochemical and immunoelectron microscopic assessment of human chorionic gonadotropin production by transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder.

BACKGROUND There have been 12 documented cases of choriocarcinoma arising in the urinary bladder, either alone or in combination with other epithelial tumors. It has been shown that some high-grade transitional cell carcinomas (TCC), without obvious syncytiotrophoblastic elements, can produce human chorionic gonadotrophins (HCG). METHODS A case of… (More)
