|Abstract:||Squamous cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis is a relatively rare disease. Recently, we observed a case of squamous cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis with vesicoureteral reflux in a 49-year-old female patient. Her main symptom was abdominal pain on the left side. The complete duplications of uretero-pelvis on both sides, and vesicoureteral reflux in the upper left part of the kidney were recognized by means of various examinations. During the operation, a tumor was found in the upper left renal pelvis, and in the ureter belonging to the upper left renal pelvis. Pathologically, it was diagnosed as a squamous cell carcinoma. After the extraction of the left uretero-pelvis, 50 Gy of radiotherapy was administered to the patient. However, she died four months after the operation.|
