Small cell carcinoma (SCC) primarily arises in the lung. Cases of primary extrapulmonary small cell carcinoma are uncommon, and may develop in various different organs. In particular, small cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder is very rare in female nonsmokers, and its prognosis is poor. The main part of treatment in SCC is a chemotherapy, which is a critical factor in its prognosis. In the present report, we describe the case of an 82-year-old female non-smoker who underwent transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) without chemotherapy for small-cell carcinoma of the bladder, and experienced a relapse at a same area to the primary tumor site.
