Abstract

We herein report a 70-year-old man with recurrent multiple cerebral infarctions under warfarin therapy who was finally diagnosed with Trousseau's syndrome resulting from advanced bladder cancer. A histological examination of the mesenteric lymph nodes revealed metastasis of micropapillary urothelial cancer with positive mucin markers CA125 and MUC1. Blood examinations also indicated elevated tumor markers, such as CA19-9 and CA125. To our knowledge, this is the first report of Trousseau's syndrome in a patient with bladder micropapillary urothelial cancer in which mucin involvement was clearly proven by histological and serological examinations.
