Introduction- Urinary bladder pathology (benign or malignant) are a common cause of morbidity or mortality in general population, so knowing the types of lesions is helpful in management.
Objective- The purpose of this study to find out the histopathological spectrum of urinary bladder lesions in TURBT and cystoscopic biopsies and to study the frequency of different types of urinary bladder lesions particularly urothelial neoplasm in tertiary care centre of Bihar .
Material & Methods - 100 TURBT specimens of patients undergoing cystoscopic biopsies of all age and both sexes have been studies.
Results- Out of 100 patients undergoing cystoscopic biopsies, 30 cases were nonneoplastic and 70 cases were neoplastic, Out of those 70 cases, 21 were low grade urothelial carcinoma and 27 were high grade urothelial carcinoma.
Conclusion- Our study revealed that neoplastic lesions are more common. Most common age group is 51 to 60 years. High grade papillary urothelial carcinoma with muscles invasion was the commonest urothelail neoplasm at the time of presentation. Hence inclusion of detrusor muscle in the cystoscopic biopsy is of utmost importance.
