Abstract

Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the prostate is becoming a well- recognized entity that may be increasing in frequency. Meticulous pathologic examination of the prostate in cases of concomitant bladder TCC may discover involvement of the prostate in as many as 45% of patients. In this article, the etiology, pathology, and staging system are reviewed, and the case is made for routine examination of the prostate in every patient with high grade bladder TCC. Emphasis is given to the correct method of obtaining the tissue for the diagnosis. Treatment options and prognosis, both of which are dictated by the depth of invasion, i.e., the stage, are delineated.
