A Locally Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Ureter

Omer A Raheem, Emam Elmusharaf, Rowan G Casey, Ted McDermott


Squamous cell carcinoma of the ureter is very rare, constituting only 1-1.6% of all urothelial tumours. It is an aggressive tumor, spreading to bone, liver and lung. The median post diagnosis survival is short and estimated to be five months. Definitive diagnosis is exclusively by histology. Therapeutic options may include radical surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these treatments. We present a case of locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the ureter and comment on its clinical management and subsequent oncological outcomes.
