A 62-year-old white man had diffuse transitional cell carcinoma of a right ureteral stump 2 1/2 years after initial transurethral resection of a bladder tumor and right radical nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma. This case and review of the literature suggest an indication for complete ureterectomy in nephrectomy candidates with prior or concurrent transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.
