Abstract

Metastatic carcinoma of the bladder presenting with enlarged left supraclavicular lymphadenopathy is not reported in literature published in English language. All three cases presented with a Virchow’s node with computer tomography confirming solid bladder tumour. Histology proved muscle invasive high grade transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) with one with neuroendocrine differentiation and another with squamous metaplasia. The article reviews diagnosis and management of three cases of metastatic bladder cancer presenting with left supraclavicular lymph node deposits.
