Ozbey EG. Squamous cell carcinoma in bladder secondary to Schistosoma haematobium infection. Edorium J Infect Dis 2015;2:7–10.

Introduction: Despite the fact that urothelial carcinoma is the most common bladder tumor about 15% of bladder cancers have differentiated tumor types. Squamous cell carcinomas, which is one of these rare tumor types, are seen in 5% of schistosomiasis cases caused by infestation of Schistosoma haematobium parasitic worms where the disease is endemic.
Case Report: We would like to discuss a case that came to our clinic for a bladder tumor in a relatively young age and diagnosed with Schistosoma related squamous cell carcinoma by pathology department after she was treated with transurethral resection (TUR) of tumor with the help of previously published studies found in literature.
Conclusion: Squamous cell carcinomas, which are rarely seen in bladder tumors, can also be caused by Schistosoma infections.

Keywords: Bladder, Schistosoma haematobium, Squamous cell carcinoma
