Abstract

Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) is a rare finding in the upper urinary tract. The presenting clinical findings mimic those of other more common upper-tract tumors, such as urothelial carcinoma. Preoperative imaging has not been shown to reliably predict the diagnosis of LELC. This tumor can be misdiagnosed as a reactive inflammatory lesion or lymphoma if the proper immunohistochemical stains for cytokeratin are not used.
