  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine whether neoadjuvant intravesical Gemcitabine is enough active in patients with a solitary, low risk superficial bladder cancer.After diagnostic urethrocystoscopy or bladder sonography, all patients will receive intravesical gemcitabine once a week during 6 weeks. Two weeks after finishing antiblastic therapy, all patients will be submitted to a new cystoscopy, with TUR or cold biopsies of the site of the initial lesion.
