ABSTRACTObjective. This report describes the case of a patient presenting with obstructive uropathy secondary to prostate cancer that had invaded the bladder trigone.
Clinical case. A male patient in the sixth decade of life who presented with previously diagnosed prostate cancer developed obstructive uropathy resulting from invasion of the cancer into the bladder. Endoscopic ureteroneocystostomy was performed by resecting the compromised ureteral meatuses and placing a double-J catheter. Obstruction was resolved and patient progress was adequate.
