Primary Non-Hodgkin lymphoma of kidney and ureter mimicking an upper tract urothelial carcinoma: A case report
Publication date: Available online 13 December 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Caesar Khairul Wallad, Syamsu Hudaya, Mursyid Fadli, Bonita Prawirodihardjo, Randy Januar, Akhmad MustafaAbstractPrimary renal lymphoma (PRL) is a rare event, while ureteric involvement by the lymphoma mimicking an UTUC is even rarer. A 30-year-old woman diagnosed for a 6-month history of right flank pain with presumed the UTUC of the right kidney. She underwent radical nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff excision, which reveals the infiltrating papillary mass of the ureter from the proximal region towards the ureterovesical junction. Kidney mass was found mostly solid in the parenchymal region, renal hilus was found adherent towards the wall of the inferior vena cava in which it reveals a similar pathology result of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
We describe the most highly recommended generic and disease-specific PRO tools in SCD and discuss the challenges of incorporating them in clinical practice. EXPERT OPINION: PRO measures are essential to incorporate into SCD clinical trials either as primary or secondary outcomes. The use of PRO measures in SCD facilitates a patient-centered approach, which is likely to lead to improved outcomes. Significant challenges remain in adapting PRO tools to routine clinical use and in developing countries. PMID: 33034214 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
