A 72-year-old Japanese man presented to the hospital with complaints of gross hematuria. Contrast enhanced computed tomography revealed a broad-based, approximately 3-cm bladder tumor near the right ureteral orifice and a 5-cm mass located between the prostate and rectum. The patient underwent transurethral resection of the bladder tumor and a transrectal biopsy of the lesion. Histological examination of the specimens suggested that the patient had a muscle invasive adenocarcinoma from TURBT and a rectal gastrointestinal stromal tumor in TRUS biopsy...
