Abstract

A case of multiple inverted papillomas of both ureters, in association with a bladder carcinoma, is presented. Inverted papilloma is a rare benign urothelial tumor. Because of its curability by conservative surgery, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a ureteral filling defect and ureteral obstruction. Inverted papilloma may be associated with carcinomas of the urinary tract.
