We report a case of squamous cell carcinoma of the ureter with periureteral infiltration. Three years following radical surgery, no evidence of tumor progression has been observed. Only 1% to 1.6% of urothelial tumors of the upper urinary tract are purely squamous cell tumors.
This tumor type carries a poor prognosis. Currently, the best results can be achieved by early diagnosis and radical surgery.
