Many lesions that appeared abnormal cystoscopically showed benign inflammatory changes of cystitis cystica et glandularis and/or florid proliferation of von Brunn nests.
Underestimation of the severity of UTI or/and hasty shortening of parenteral/oral therapy duration may lead to UTI recurrence and evolution to cystitis cystica (12,20,21).
We refer to a lesion as cystitis glandularis when there is benign glandular differentiation in the von Brunn nests, (40) while cystitis cystica is used when glandular structures show cystic dilatation.
Mild inflammation, as well as other reactive conditions, such as cystitis cystica, can accompany the lesion.
This is confirmed by the difficult differential diagnosis between these histological appearance and lesions, such as inverted papilloma, VBNs, cystitis cystica and nephrogenic metaplasia.[sup.7] Nest-like structures are the cardinal lesion of both benign and malignant entities that can be misdiagnosed as nested variant bladder carcinoma.
Foci of cystitis cystica may also be seen in some of these tumors (Figure 2).
We report a recurrent case of cystitis cystica et glandularis, common type.
The nests commonly have central lumina resembling cystitis cystica. (13-15) Most nests have a deceptively bland cytology in the superficial areas of the tumor, although random cytologic atypia within nests is commonly seen.
Cystitis Cystica and Cystitis Glandularis.--These represent a continuum of proliferative and presumed reactive changes that can involve von Brunn nests anywhere along the urinary tract and are usually named accordingly (cystitis cystica, ureteritis cystica, urethritis cystica).
