Large cerebellar lesion as original manifestation of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.
Davies BJ., Bastacky S., Chung SY.
Patients with transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder classically present with irritative voiding symptoms or painless hematuria. Common sites of vascular metastases include the liver (38%), lung (36%), bone (27%), adrenal glands (21%), and intestine (13%). Vascular metastasis to the brain, without a prior history of chemotherapy, is extremely rare. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with bladder transitional cell carcinoma whose original presentation was from a symptomatic, metastatic, cerebellar lesion.
