An 84-year-old female was referred to our hospital to be examined for left hydronephrosis. Abdominal pelvic computed tomography and ureteroscopy showed an obstructing mass in the left ureter. A biopsy of the mass revealed the presence of small cell carcinoma. A left nephroureterectomy were thus performed.
