Abstract

Although metastatic renal cell carcinoma is not uncommon, metastases to the ureteral stump and bladder are very rare. A 69-year-old woman who had undergone radical nephrectomy because of right renal cell carcinoma about 8 years ago, visited our hospital for evaluation of painless gross hematuria. Histologic examination of the removed ureteral stump and bladder specimen demonstrated metastatic renal cell carcinoma. We report a case of renal cell carcinoma with metastases to the ureteral stump 5 years after radical nephrectomy and bladder 8 years after radical nephrectomy.
