f0005: (a–c) Histological findings at both low (×100) and high (×400) power. Haematoxylin and eosin stain.

Mentions: There was no recurrence after a 3-year follow-up using abdominal ultrasonography (US) and cystoscopy, with assessments every 3 months in the first year then every 6 months thereafter. Fig. 1(a–c) shows the histological findings. Sections showed elongated papillary fronds lined by several layers of transitional cells with slightly enlarged crowded nuclei. There was no frank pleomorphism and no stromal invasion. The diagnosis was papillary urothelial neoplasm of low malignant potential (PUNLMP, WHO grade I).
