Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Renal Pelvis Infiltrating the Kidney Revealed by Pyonephrosis: about a Case and Review of the Literature

Abstract

1. Abstract
Squamous cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis infiltrating the kidney is a rare entity with a poor prognosis. It is secondary to chronic irritation of the urothelium caused by a stone or infection. It is not mentioned in practice, given its non-specific manifestation and the absence of radiological specificities. We are reporting a case of squamous cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis infiltrating the kidney presenting as pyonephrosis on lithiasis in a 62 year old patient. The diagnosis was histological, post nephrectomy.
