Primary Renal Squamous Cell Carcinoma: An Unusual Malignancy
Malignancies of the upper urinary tract are rare, accounting for about 8% of all malignancies of the renal system, presenting mostly as urothelial carcinoma. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) arising from the upper urinary tract is even more rare, accounting for about 0.5% of all malignancies of the renal system and 10% of all renal pelvic tumors. There are very few case reports in the indexed literature regarding renal squamous cell carcinoma. Here we present a case of SCC arising from the lower pole of left kidney, in a 35-year-old male resident of Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashmir.
