Keywords: Bladder metastasis, non-Small cell lung cancer
Approximately 2% of bladder malignancies are metastatic. The lung cancer makes metastasis sporadically to the bladder. A-69-year-old female patient presented with a history of pain in kidneys, vomiting and hematuria. Cystoscopic examination of the patient revealed small bladder capacity and solitary lesions in the bladder wall. Thoracic computed tomography scan identified multiple solid masses in the right lung. A chemotherapy regimen against epithelial tumors (Granisetron, Carboplatin, and Gemcitabine) was recommended. At the end of the 3 courses, chemotherapy regimen was stopped because of poor general health condition. She died in 9th month of the diagnosis.
