Abstract

Urothelial cell carcinoma of the bladder is exceedingly rare in pediatric patients. Based on current literature, bladder cancer in this population is thought to be low-grade, noninvasive, and unlikely to recur, suggesting significant biologic differences when compared to the adult population. This is a 15-year-old male diagnosed with low-grade urothelial cell carcinoma with subsequent multifocal recurrence on surveillance cystoscopy managed by induction and maintenance intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guerin. This case highlights the challenges of management and surveillance of this rare disease.
