CASTILLO GARCIA, Idelma et al. A satisfactory progress and survival in a female patient suffering from urethral carcinoma. a case report. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.3, pp. 56-61. ISSN 1561-3194.
A 34 year-old, Caucasian-female patient presenting a recurrent, low urinary sepsis came to the out-patient clinic at "Abel Santamaria Cuadrado" University Hospital complaining of burning and pain during the passing of urine, a diminution of urine stream and vesical tenesmus. At physical examination a tumor emerging from the urethral meatus was observed, having a red-purplish vascularization located in the anterior urethra. Complementary tests and imaging examinations were performed which ranges showed normal values. Surgical treatment (removal of the tumor and electro- fulguration) and a biopsy were performed which resulted in a micro-invasive transitional carcinoma having a lymphatic invasion completely removed, the patient showed a satisfactory clinical progress, currently cured.
