Abstract

Urinary cytology has significantly contributed to the diagnosis of bladder cancer. More specifically, it has enhanced the diagnostic yield of carcinoma-in-situ (8). It has improved prognostic grading and it has an important place in the follow-up of treated bladder cancer patients. The reliability of urinary cytology has been confirmed in numerous scientific contributions (7). In this connection it is worth noting here once again the specifity and sensitivity of cytology of smears of sediment of fresh voided urine samples, stained by Papanicolaou and/or Giemsa stains (2).
