Abstract

Renal pelvic carcinoma is a rare tumor. There are several staging systems currently in use based on a bladder cancer staging model. An analysis of the American Cancer Society, Illinois Division, experience with 611 cases of renal pelvic transitional cell carcinoma suggested that the kidney parenchyma may be a determinant in the anatomic spread of disease. A tumor–node–metastask system for renal pelvic (separate from ureteral) cancer is recommended.
