TORRES GOMEZ, Francisco Javier  and  TORRES OLIVERA, Francisco Javier. Renal pelvis mucinous carcinoma: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.3, pp.297-299. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objetive: There is some controversy in the terminology used for transitional cell tumors with mucinous differentiation. Methods: We report the case of a 50-year-old male with history of recurrent lithiasis whose radological tests discovered a heterogeneous renal pelvis lesion. Results: The histologic study of the lesions determined the diagnosis of transitional cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis with ample mucinous differentiation. Conclusions: They are rare tumors in such location and the mucinous differentiation does not seem to influence prognosis.

Keywords : Renal pelvis; Mucinous carcinoma.
