The villus width was measured at the middle of the villi (Awad et al., 2011; Choe et al., 2012).The thickness of muscularis mucosae (thin layer of smooth muscle)was measured from the base of the crypt to the base of the muscularis mucosae.
After marker dots were placed around the lesion, a solution (above-mentioned) was injected around the lesion to lift it off the muscularis propria layer, and the incision was started outside the marker dots using the hook knife /the insulated-tip knife.
According to the histomorphological features and the immunohistochemical profile (Figure 3), similar to the first case, the histopathological diagnosis was an IMT of the urinary bladder with muscularis mucosa infiltration.
Colitis cystica profunda (CCP) is a benign disease characterized by mucin-filled cysts beneath the muscularis mucosa.[sup][1] CCP can present in a localized form with a polypoid lesion, or as a more diffuse process involving a variable length of the rectal mucosa or colon.[sup][2] Cysts, which may be quite large, are localized to the rectosigmoid region and are usually 6 to 7 cm from the anal verge.
[14] The new WHO classification of urothelial carcinomas of the urinary bladder (1999) discriminate the minimally invasive papillary urothelial carcinomas in those with infiltration of the lamina propria above the muscularis mucosae (pT1a), the infiltration of the lamina muscularis mucosae (pT1b), and the extension beyond the muscularis mucosae (pT1c).

Fibrosis was minimal and insufficient to account for stricturing, as previously assumed, and is mostly the result of hypertrophy and thickening of the muscularis mucosa, as in our case (Fig.
