DNA estimation by image cytometry of bladder irrigation specimens stresses the metaplastic character of nephrogenic adenoma and appears able to separate it from bladder lesions with increased malignant potential. Several robust numeric DNA histogram classifiers are demonstrated to be of high discriminative and prognostic value in diagnosis and follow-up of this entity.
