Abstract
Photodynamic therapy is a treatment approach that makes use of a photosensitizer to generate a cell death mechanism in a selective tissue. For its characteristics such as multifocality, high recurrence rate, presence of carcinoma in situ, superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder seems to be an excellent indication for such an approach. Following an overview of thirty years of research, this review focuses on recent developments.
