Three cases of mixed mesodermal tumors of the urinary bladder characterized by the simultaneous occurrence of malignant epithelial and mesenchymal elements in the same tumor are reported. Integrated therapy consisting of preoperative radiotherapy followed by radical cystectomy is recommended. Chemotherapy is best withheld until the nature of any metastatic disease has been confirmed histologically in order that the appropriate drugs can be administered.
