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.
