Société Internationale d’Urologie (SIU) lecture Non-urothelial bladder cancer
 B.R. Konety
Aims and objectives of this presentation

Non-urothelial bladder cancer comprises approximately 5% of all bladder neoplasms in general. Most common non urothelial tumours include squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. This presentation will discuss management of the various non-urothelial forms of bladder cancer and touch upon the distinction between pure non-urothelial tumours and histologic variants of urothelial bladder cancer which may have different biologic behavior and respond to different treatment approaches.

 H. Moch, Zurich (CH)
Aims and objectives of this presentation

The new “Blue Book” of the 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) classification of urogenital tumours contains significant changes, which were discussed at the WHO Consensus Conference in March 2015 in Zurich, Switzerland. The revision of the 2004 WHO urogenital tumour classification was performed by a large group of uropathologists under consideration of new knowledge on pathology, epidemiology and genetics. This presentation will summarise the most important changes of the new WHO classification, including changes from existing tumour types, novel tumours, provisional/emerging tumour entities and novel grading system and/or prognostic groups.
