Micropapillary urothelial carcinoma of the ureter.
Cesk Patol. 2012 Apr; 48(2):100-2.CP

Abstract

Micropapillary urothelial carcinoma (MPUC) is a rare aggressive variant of urothelial carcinoma, associated with advanced tumor stage, high tendency to invade lymphovascular spaces, and metastasize to lymph nodes and other organs. Therefore, it has a poor prognosis. One of the most prominent histological features is the presence of small, round empty spaces surrounding infiltrating tumor nests. If detected, even a small focus of micropapillary pattern may be therapeutically significant; the higher proportion of micropapillary component, the worse the prognosis. Radical nephroureterectomy is the treatment of choice even in the setting of superficially invasive disease. Although, MPUC has been well studied in urinary bladder, only a few cases of MPUC in upper urinary tract have been described. We are describing a case of a 79-year old woman with micropapillary urothelial carcinoma involving ureter and review the literature of this rare entity.
