Abstract

Recognition of other histological variants of urothelial carcinoma of the bladder is important because they may mimic benign lesions or have different clinical implications and associated prognoses, as well as treatment protocols. We report a case of lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELCA) in the bladder and discuss this rare entity with a review of other articles. Although we could not draw a conclusion on this particular disease, it is hoped that by adding cases with sufficient detail into literature, we will enable a more thorough and meaningful study where characteristics of the disease and the appropriate treatment regime could be facilitated.
