Abstract

Patients with bladder exstrophy–epispadias complex (BEEC) are at risk for bladder cancer, usually this presents as adenocarcinoma (Smeulders “BJU Int” 87:623–628, 2001). Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is rare, with only 13 documented case reports. This is a case of SCC in a 78-year-old man with BEEC who underwent cystectomy and ureterosigmoidostomy in childhood.
