Urothelial carcinoma in the urinary bladder of a Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Tumors of urinary origin are infrequently reported in non-human primates. Urothelial carcinoma involving the urinary bladder was diagnosed in an adult female Japanese macaque that extended transmurally to the uterus and cervix. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a primary cystic urothelial carcinoma in a Japanese macaque.
