OBJECTIVE: To present the therapeutic management of severe complications related to postoperative mitomycin extravasation.
METHODS: Description of clinical cases, medical and surgical management and pathologic results of surgical specimens.
RESULTS: We report two cases of patients with extravesical mitomycin leakage after postoperative instillation. No bladder perforation was evident during tumor surgery. In both cases radical cystectomy was required.
CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative mitomycin instillation may have undesirable consequences. The possible problems derived from its administration must be known, and each case must be individualized before administering this chemotherapy.
