Abstract

Transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder is rare in patients under sixteen years of age. A case is described in a ten-year-old boy, and the literature is reviewed. The diagnosis and treatment of this tumor is the same in childhood as in older patients. Recurrence as well as death have been reported in this age group; therefore, these patients warrant careful long-term follow-up.
