Mimickers of Urothelial Carcinoma and the Approach to Differential Diagnosis.

Clin Pract 2021 Feb 25;11(1):110-123. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Department of Pathology, Cruces University Hospital, Biocruces-Bizkaia Health Research Institute, 48903 Barakaldo, Spain.

A broad spectrum of lesions, including hyperplastic, metaplastic, inflammatory, infectious, and reactive, may mimic cancer all along the urinary tract. This narrative collects most of them from a clinical and pathologic perspective, offering urologists and general pathologists their most salient definitory features. Together with classical, well-known, entities such as urothelial papillomas (conventional (UP) and inverted (IUP)), nephrogenic adenoma (NA), polypoid cystitis (PC), fibroepithelial polyp (FP), prostatic-type polyp (PP), verumontanum cyst (VC), xanthogranulomatous inflammation (XI), reactive changes secondary to BCG instillations (BCGitis), schistosomiasis (SC), keratinizing desquamative squamous metaplasia (KSM), post-radiation changes (PRC), vaginal-type metaplasia (VM), endocervicosis (EC)/endometriosis (EM) (müllerianosis), malakoplakia (MK), florid von Brunn nest proliferation (VB), cystitis/ureteritis cystica (CC), and glandularis (CG), among others, still other cellular proliferations with concerning histological features and poorly understood etiopathogenesis like IgG4-related disease (IGG4), PEComa (PEC), and pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferations (post-operative spindle cell nodule (POS), inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT)), are reviewed.

Inverted urothelial papilloma of the upper urinary tract: description of two cases with systematic literature review.

Diagn Pathol 2020 Apr 22;15(1):40. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

Pathology Section, Department of Health Sciences, University of Florence, Viale Pieraccini 6, 50139, Florence, Italy.

Background: Inverted urothelial papilloma (IUP) of the upper urinary tract is an uncommon benign tumour that occasionally presents as a polypoid mass causing urinary obstruction. Histologically, IUP is characterised by a proliferating urothelium arranged in cords and trabeculae, in continuity with overlying intact epithelium, and extending into the lamina propria in a non-invasive, endophytic manner. Cytological atypia is minimal or absent. Read More

Ureteritis Cystica: An Unusual Presentation in an Otherwise Healthy Female.

Cureus 2018 Apr 17;10(4):e2490. Epub 2018 Apr 17.

Internal Medicine, Creighton University Medical Center, Omaha, USA.

A 23-year-old, previously healthy female presented with lower abdominal pain and mildly elevated creatinine one month following a right ureter stent for non-specific ureteral thickening causing obstruction. On admission, computed tomography (CT) revealed moderate hydronephrosis of the left kidney that would require stent placement as well. During stent placement, it was noted that the gross appearance of the ureters resembled ureteritis cystica. Read More

Ureteral replacement and onlay repair with reconfigured intestinal segments.

J Urol 2014 May 18;191(5):1301-6. Epub 2013 Nov 18.

University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida.

Purpose: Ureteral loss represents a surgical challenge to provide low pressure drainage while avoiding urinary stasis and reflux. The ideal replacement should optimize drainage while minimizing absorption, allowing for ureteral repair of varied lengths and locations with maximal preservation of the urinary tract. We reviewed our experience with ureteral repair, focusing on the use of reconfigured intestine. Read More

Genitourinary schistosomiasis: life cycle and radiologic-pathologic findings.

Radiographics 2012 Jul-Aug;32(4):1031-46

Department of Radiology, Urology and Nephrology Center, Mansoura University, Mansoura, Egypt.

Genitourinary schistosomiasis is produced by Schistosoma haematobium, a species of fluke that is endemic to Africa and the Middle East, and causes substantial morbidity and mortality in those regions. It also may be seen elsewhere, as a result of travel or immigration. S haematobium, one of the five fluke species that account for most human cases of schistosomiasis, is the only species that infects the genitourinary system, where it may lead to a wide spectrum of clinical symptoms and signs.

Ureteritis cystica: a radiologic pathologic correlation.

J Clin Imaging Sci 2011 2;1:23. Epub 2011 May 2.

Department of Urology, University of Rochester School of Medicine, Rochester, NY, USA.

Ureteritis cystica (UC) is a benign condition that commonly affects the ureter and can mimic other conditions such as transitional cell carcinoma, blood clots, air bubbles, radiolucent stones, fibroepithelial polyps, and sloughed renal papillae. Radiographically, UC is characterized by multiple small, round, lucent defects, which cause scalloping of the ureteral margins when seen in profile. The scalloping is produced by the projection of the submucosal cysts into the lumen and represents an important differential feature of this disease. Read More

Urinary schistosomiasis: urographic features and significance of drooping kidney appearance.

Int Urol Nephrol 2001 ;33(3):461-5

Department of Radiology, Faculty of Medicine, Kuwait University, Safat.

The purpose of the study was to analyse the urographic features of schistosomiasis and to see the theurapeutic implications of "drooping kidney" appearance for the urologists. Over a period of one year, 1636 patients undergoing intravenous urography (IVU) were analysed to look for urographic features of schistosomiasis. A total of 136 patients revealed the classical urographic feature such as ureteric strictures, vesical and ureteric calcification and calculi etc. Read More
