We report a case of upper urothelial tumor in a patient who had previously received prolonged cyclophosphamide therapy for Waldeström's macroglobulinemia.
Although bladder tumors in cyclophosphamide-treated patients are relatively frequent, upper urothelial tumors are rare. Only 5 cases of this latter tumor type have been reported as of 1987. The literature on this disease entity is reviewed.
Patients who have received prolonged therapy with cyclophosphamide or similar drugs must be followed very closely.
