AbstractSpecimens from 334 Chinese patients who underwent surgical treatment for bladder tumours over a 6 year period were studied retrospectively. Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) accounted for 91.3% of all the bladder tumours. The male to female ratio was 3:1 and the mean age was 69 years. Papillary TCC, which represented 67.5% of all TCC, were more often of a lower grade compared to non-papillary tumours. The staging of tumours was done for the 102 cystectomy specimens with TCC only. Among these, 28% were superficial while 72% were muscle-invasive and the papillary TCC usually presented at an earlier stage. Infiltration into the prostate gland was identified in 11% of male patients while coexisting adenocarcinoma of the prostate was observed in another 4.2%. Other types of carcinoma were uncommon. Squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and small cell carcinoma accounted for 2.7, 1.8 and 0.6% of all bladder tumours, respectively. A rare case of sarcomatoid carcinoma was also found, but no true sarcoma was documented in this series. Benign lesions included five inverted papillomas, three nephrogenic adenomas, two paragangliomas and one haemangioma.
