| Case Report|| |
Forty five year old male presented with supra pubic ulceroproliferative lesion of two months duration. He gave history of having a reddish patch in the same site since birth. Voiding was normal. Clinical examination revealed a supra pubic reddish patch with an ulcerproliferative lesion (2x1cm) at one edge. He also had divarication of recti, low lying umbilical hernia, short phallus and glandular epispaclias [Figure - 2]a
Abdominal roentgenography revealed pubic diastasis [Figure - 1]a Kidneys and bladder were normal in CT scan. The supra pubic mass was limited to parietal wall without evidence of deeper invasion or nodal metastasis [Figure - 1]b. Cystoscopy confirmed normal inner bladder.
Biopsy was taken from the mass and adjacent lesion which was reported as Grade I squamous cell carcinoma and squamous metaplasia of transitional epithelium respectively [Figure - 2]b. Wide excision with preservation of bladder was done and the resultant defect was closed with Limberg's rotation flap from groin. In one year follow-up, patient had no recurrence.
| Comments|| |
Duplicate exstrophy is a rare minor variant of the exstrophy epispadias complex in which there are remnants of bladder elements outside at the lower abdominal wall surface and together with this ectopic tissue, there is a closed normal bladder inside the pelvic cavity , .
Usually patients present in the pediatric age group and treatment in the form of excision of bladder mucosal plate is gratifying  .
The finding of duplicate exstrophy in an adult with squamous malignancy is unique and hitherto not reported.
