|Title:||Ureteric Obstruction From Malignant Melanoma in Both Right Double Moiety and Left Single Moiety Ureters||Authors:||March, Brayden ;Calopedos, Ross J S ;Latif, Edward ;Ouyang, Rupert||Affliation:||Central Coast Local Health District
|Issue Date:||May-2017||Source:||103:e7-e8||Journal title:||Urology||Department:||Urology||Abstract:||We report the first documented case of malignant melanoma obstructing ureters of both moieties of a duplex kidney and contralateral single moiety ureter in a 51-year-old male. The patient presented with fever, coryzal symptoms, and liver function test derangement several years after 2 superficial spreading melanomas were excised with clear margins. Ultrasonography demonstrated hydronephroureter in both moieties of a complete right-sided duplex kidney. Retrograde pyelograms showed bilateral hydronephroureter and filling defects in all 3 ureters. Biopsied tumor cells were positive for S100, Melan A, and HMB45. Cutaneous melanoma metastasizing to ureters is a rare phenomenon and can present a diagnostic challenge to clinicians if clinically silent.||URI:||https://elibrary.cclhd.health.nsw.gov.au/cclhdjspui/handle/1/1501||DOI:||10.1016/j.urology.2017.02.021||Pubmed:||https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28216451||ISSN:||0090-4295||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Cancer
