Abstract

The metastasis of renal cell carcinoma is common, but ureteral metastasis is very rare. A 68-year-old woman was evaluated for painless total gross hematuria accompanied by a blood clot. The left upper pole mass was preoperatively proven as renal cell carcinoma by CT-guided fine needle biopsy, and left radical nephrectomy was performed. Two months post operation, she visited again with the same symptom. On the ureteroscopic biopsy, left ureteral cancer was diagnosed by frozen biopsy. Left ureterectomy with bladder cuff excision was done, and pathologic examination demonstrated ureteral metastasis of renal cell carcinoma. She has been in good condition without any signs of recurrence until now. We report ureteral metastasis of renal cell carcinoma with 7 years survival time.
