Abstract

With less than 30 cases reported in the literature, primary upper tract small cell neuroendocrine tumors are extremely rare. An 84-year-old woman with a history of ovarian carcinoma treated surgically and with adjuvant chemotherapy presents with right hydronephrosis discovered on surveillance imaging. Thought to be due to extrinsic compression, a ureteral stent was placed followed by routine exchanges until stent failure prompted ureteroscopy, which showed a mass in the mid ureter.
