Bladder cancer has been an endemic disease in Southern Taiwan and the eight highest cancer in Taiwanese male. In this issue, Chen PC et al. reviewed the “Autophagy modulation by dysregulated microRNAs in human bladder cancer,” and Tsai TF et al. reported the experimental study on “Suppression of quercetin-induced autophagy enhances cytotoxicity via elevating apoptotic cell death in human bladder cancer cells.” Chang LW et al. summarized their experiences in “Efficacy of bladder instillations with mitomycin or bacillus Calmette-Guérin in patients with T1 high grade bladder cancer: Experience from a single center.” Through basic science research and clinical observation, we may have better care of our bladder cancer patients.

Bladder calculus in Taiwan is an interesting topic, and Laih C et al. made a good review on this topic. Chang SJ et al. did challenge in “Differentiating tower from bell curves in smooth continuous uroflowmetry curves of healthy adolescents.” Tower curve may not always represent overactive bladder. The treatment of extrapulmonary TB is a challenge to all clinicians. Yang S et al. summarized their experience in “The effect of treatment timing and urinary drainage on the outcome of urinary tuberculosis.”

Urological Science has drawn international attention which can be proved by the “comment and reply” to the published article of “Penile fracture management,” a paper published just in the last year.
