Abstract

Background
Late pulmonary metastasis from urothelial carcinoma (UC) of the upper urinary tract is extremely rare.

Case presentation
A 76-year-old man was referred to our hospital due to an abnormal shadow on chest X-ray. He had a history of left nephrectomy with a diagnosis of UC in the renal pelvis 29 years previously.
