ABSTRACTThis report describes the fourth case of squamous cell bladder carcinoma with vesicocutaneous fistulous tract invasion. A 34-year-old paraplegic man had a past medical history of cystostomy, recurrent urinary infections, and bladder lithiasis, and after 11 years of management with a permanent bladder catheter he was diagnosed with squamous cell bladder carcinoma in a vesicocutaneous fistulous tract and bilateral obstructive uropathy, along with bone and lung metastases at the time of diagnosis. Three previously reported cases of similar invasions are also described herein: Stroumbakis et al. in 1993, Stokes et al. in 1995, and Schaafsma et al. in 1999.
