A case of primary malignant lymphoma of the bladder is reported. A 70-year-old woman was admitted to our clinic with the chief complaint of intermittent gross hematuria on March 31, 1992. Examination of cystoscopy, IVP, ultrasonography and CT scan suggested a non-papillary invasive bladder tumor.
Pathological examination of transurethral biopsy revealed malignant lymphoma, B cell type.
After 5 courses of intraarterial COMPA (CDDP, VCR, MTX, PEP, ADR) chemotherapy, she have been in complete remission.
Intraarterial COMPA chemotherapy might be effective and useful for primary malignant lymphoma of the urinary bladder.
