Anterior Urethral Recurrence from an Upper Urinary Tract Urothelial Tumor

Abstract

Seung Il Jung, Ho Suck Chung, Chang Min Im, Sun-Ouck Kim, Taek Won Kang, Dong Deuk Kwon, Kwangsung Park, Soo Bang Ryu From the Department of Urology, Chonnam National University Medical School, Gwangju, Korea We report a case of a metachronous transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the penile urethra in an elderly male after nephroureterectomy. The patient had a history of right nephroureterectomy 18 months previously due to TCC of the upper urinary tract. A solitary urethral recurrence from a TCC of the upper urinary tract is rare. An anterior urethral recurrence of a TCC of the upper urinary tract has not been previously reported in the literature. The prognosis of a metachronous anterior urethral recurrence of an upper-tract TCC is poor. (Korean J Urol 2009;50:718-720) 󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏󰠏
