LOPES, Márcia; BARCAUI, Carlos Baptista and VILAR, Airá Novello. Cutaneous metastasis of bladder sarcoma: when should we consider this hypothesis? a review of the literature. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.5, pp.1022-1024. ISSN 1806-4841. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000500027.
The incidence of cutaneous metastases is approximately 0.7 to 10%, while in metastases of urothelial origin the incidence is less than 1%. Transitional cell carcinoma is the most common of the genitourinary tract tumors. Sarcoma of the bladder is rare (0.3%). It can involve multiple clinical presentations, with a nodule being the most common. Diagnosis is made by a combination of medical history, clinical examination and histopathology. The treatment is surgical. The prognosis is very uncertain and depends on a multidisciplinary approach.
