After resection, localised bladder neoplasms recurs in 50-70% of cases. On these, 30% of the form of pT1 become more aggressive. The case described here refers to a 53-year-old man who underwent repeated endoscopic resection for an extensive and voluminous transitional bladder neoplasm that continued to recidivate in a superficial form. The authors affirm that this type of noplasm must not be regarded as recidivating with increased aggressiveness. The best attitude towards this neoplasm consists in a careful follow-up with abstention from endovesical chemotherapeutic prophylaxis, except in a case of plurifocality and short-term recidivation.
