Abstract

High grade mucinous urothelial carcinoma is a rare pathological variant. There is still controversy as to its nomenclature and classification. We report the case of a 64 year old female with history of pelvic pain who was incidentally discovered to have a left upper pole renal mass. Left nephroureterectomy was performed and histopathological examination revealed high grade mucinous urothelial carcinoma. Accurate diagnosis of this distinct pathological entity will allow for better understanding of phenotypic behavior and inform best treatment strategies.
