Abstract

Lyophilized human dura was used for augmentation cystoplasty in a women who had a scarred bladder because of multiple resections and fulgurations of superficial bladder tumors. Thirty months later, two sessile tumors developed from the urothelium regenerated over the dura patch, together with infiltrating recurrences elsewhere in the bladder, and a radical cystectomy was performed. This case supports the concept that implantation of tumor cells is a factor in the recurrence of superficial bladder carcinoma.
