Sunil Vitthalrao Jagtap, Atul Beniwal, Swati S Jagtap, Anil D Huddedar.

Invasive urothelial carcinoma with glandular differentiation is a distinct variant of urinary bladder tumor. It has predominant features of urothelial carcinoma but with distinct glands. Herewith we report a case in a 72 yrs male patient presented with hematuria. Radiological examination showed mass on posterior wall of urinary bladder with thickening. Transurethral resection of bladder tumor was done and sent for histopathological examination which showed high grade transitional cell carcinoma with 30% areas showing glandular component of papillary, tubular & flat pattern. These types of urinary bladder carcinoma variants are important in clinical practice since they simulate various benign to complex lesion.

Key words: Bladder Cancer, Urothelial Carcinoma, Hematuria.
