Tian X, Zhao J, Wang Y, Xing N - Oncol Lett (2014)

Bottom Line: A computed tomography scan revealed a mass of 2 cm in diameter in the left renal pelvis.The patient did not receive systemic chemotherapy and radiotherapy.Regular follow-up was performed for 30 months, and there was no evidence of tumor local recurrence or distant metastasis.

ABSTRACT
Sarcomatoid carcinoma is a high-grade malignant neoplasm which exhibits morphological and/or immunohistochemical evidence of bidirectional epithelial and mesenchymal differentiation. Sarcomatoid carcinoma occurring in the upper urinary tract is rare. The present study reports a case of primary sarcomatoid carcinoma of the renal pelvis. A 49-year-old female patient was admitted to Beijing Chao-Yang Hospital for experiencing two weeks of intermittent hematuria. A computed tomography scan revealed a mass of 2 cm in diameter in the left renal pelvis. A retroperitoneoscopic nephroureterectomy combined with a bladder cuff excision was performed, and the final pathological diagnosis was sarcomatoid carcinoma of the renal pelvis. The patient did not receive systemic chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Regular follow-up was performed for 30 months, and there was no evidence of tumor local recurrence or distant metastasis.

f1-ol-08-03-1208: Abdominal computed tomography scan demonstrates a mass in the left renal pelvis.

Mentions: A 49-year-old female patient presented to the Department of Urology, Beijing Chao-Yang Hospital having experienced intermittent gross hematuria for the past two weeks. Physical examination indicated percussion pain in the left kidney region. An abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan was performed and revealed a 2 cm in diameter space-occupying lesion in the left renal pelvis (Fig. 1). Cystoscopic examination showed intermittent bloody fluid ejection from the left ureter. Urine cytology did not detect malignant or atypical cells. No distant metastases were detected after the patient underwent a whole-body CT scan. The patient’s past medical history disclosed that a laser endoureterotomy procedure had been applied for treatment of the right ureteral stricture 17 months previously. The preoperative diagnosis of the patient was left renal pelvic carcinoma, and a retroperitoneoscopic nephroureterectomy combined with a bladder cuff excision was performed.
