A case of ureteral obstruction and sepsis induced by bladder perforation following intravesical bacillus Calmette–Guérin successfully treated with an antituberculous agent, antimicrobial chemotherapy and percutaneous urine drainage

A case of ureteral obstruction and sepsis induced by bladder perforation following intravesical... We report a case of ureteral obstruction and sepsis induced by bladder perforation following intravesical bacillus Calmette–Guérin (BCG) that was successfully treated non-surgically. A 56-year-old man was diagnosed with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. He was treated with intravesical BCG instillation after transurethral resection of the bladder tumor. Just before the 6th course of intravesical BCG, the patient was diagnosed with bladder perforation and developed ureteral obstruction and sepsis associated with BCG. He was treated successfully with an antituberculous agent, antimicrobial chemotherapy and percutaneous urine drainage. Bladder perforation associated with BCG is a very rare adverse event that causes severe sepsis. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Cancer Conference Journal Springer Journals

Abstract

We report a case of ureteral obstruction and sepsis induced by bladder perforation following intravesical bacillus Calmette–Guérin (BCG) that was successfully treated non-surgically. A 56-year-old man was diagnosed with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. He was treated with intravesical BCG instillation after transurethral resection of the bladder tumor. Just before the 6th course of intravesical BCG, the patient was diagnosed with bladder perforation and developed ureteral obstruction and sepsis associated with BCG. He was treated successfully with an antituberculous agent, antimicrobial chemotherapy and percutaneous urine drainage. Bladder perforation associated with BCG is a very rare adverse event that causes severe sepsis.
