Objetive: To present a case of tubulovillous renal pelvis adenocarcinoma. Methods/Results: An 81 year-old patient presented at Emergency Departament with sepsis. CT scan showed a staghorn calculus with signs suggestive of pyonefrosis. A nephrectomy was performed and pathological exam revealed tubulovillous renal pelvis adenocarcinoma.
