Plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma (bladder)


Plasmacytoid carcinoma of the urinary bladder or plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma (PUC) is a rare and only recently described histological variant of urothelial/transitional cell carcinoma.

The MRI features are suggestive of a bladder cancer. There are no definite imaging features to point to a diagnosis of plasmacytoid carcinoma.

There was no metastatic disease spread on MRI, CT or reported on the pathology report following the bladder resection and localized lymph node clearance.
