Abstract
Small cell carcinoma of the urethra (SCCB) is a rare yet highly aggressive malignancy. The pathogenesis of SCCB is poorly understood due to few large-scale cohort studies. Currently, SCCB is diagnosed primarily by morphological assessment. However, immunohistochemical staining can also play an important role, particularly in cases that are difficult to distinguish morphologically. In this study, we described an 85-year-old male who suffered from discontinuous gross hematuria and odynuria. He underwent transurethral resection of the bladder tumor for imaging identified mass with the final diagnosis SCCB after morphological and immunohistochemical assessments. And we observed that immunohistochemical staining played an important role in the diagnosis of SCCB, especially in cases that were difficult to distinguish based on morphology alone
