Of 171 patients consecutively presenting with newly diagnosed transitional cell cancer (TCC) of the bladder, 107 were "superficial"; 98 have been followed up for 2 years and 84 for 3 years. No patient with pTa TCC developed muscle infiltrating recurrences, although 15% progressed to pT1 category by 3 years. At 2 and 3 years respectively, 33 and 46% of the pT1 TCC had progressed to infiltrate muscle. The use of the term "superficial" to describe pTa and pT1 category TCC together in one grouping should be reconsidered.
