Bladder reconstruction using bowel segments, especially the ileum, has become a realistic
option for urinary diversion. There is only one prior case of squamous cell carcinoma of the
ileal neobladder that has been reported in the clinical literature. Here we report a patient with
a spectrum of squamous cell lesions, including squamous cell carcinoma, sarcomatoid carcinoma,
squamous papilloma and squamous metaplasia that developed in the ileal neobladder.
A 46-year-old woman underwent a hysterectomy, cystectomy and ileocystoplasty for tuberculosis
25 years previously complained of urinary frequency and gross hematuria for one week.
A pelvic CT revealed a 6.3 cm mass in the neobladder. The histopathological examination
showed an 11×8 cm polypoid fragile mass with a microscopically well-differentiated squamous
cell carcinoma, squamous papilloma and non-tumor squamous metaplasia.
