Abstract

We report 4 cases of bladder cancer in an ethnically diverse population of about 2500 HIV-infected patients. These patients were younger than the median age at diagnosis of bladder cancer in the United States. At the time of cancer diagnosis, their CD4+ cell counts ranged from 88/1/4L to 305/1/4L. Two + patients had low-grade papillary cancer at diagnosis, one with muscle invasion and the other with progression from low-grade to metastatic bladder cancer. One patient with low-grade tumor did not have disease progression after the first relapse, and one patient had high-grade stage IV cancer at diagnosis. As the natural history of long-term survival with HIV infection continues to evolve, further surveillance may be needed regarding a possible increased risk of bladder cancer.
