Ossifying metaplasia of urothelial metastases: original case with review of the literature

Published inBMC medical imaging, vol. 15, 30
Publication date2015
Abstract

Ossifying metaplasia is an unusual feature of urothelial carcinoma, with only a few cases reported. The largest series included 17 cases and was published in 1991. The mechanism of ossification is unknown and hypotheses of osteogenic precursor cells, inducing bone formation, are proposed.
