Abstract

We report a chronic hemodialyzed patient with bladder involvement of a secondary amyloidosis that presented as isolated hematuria evolving quickly to a massive hemorrhage and vesical rupture. We believe that this is the first report of bladder amyloidosis involvement in the course of hemodialysis. This knowledge may help in managing dialysis patients with hematuria. © 1992 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.
