Occasional and Rare Lesions of the Urinary Tract


Urothelial neoplasia, including urothelial carcinoma and urothelial carcinoma with divergent differentiation, dominate the urinary tract. Recognition and diagnosis of less common tumors, whether primary or secondary, is of utmost importance as surgical and oncologic management varies considerably and appropriate classification is essential.
