Abstract

Emphysematous pyelonephritis and double cancers of the kidney and urinary tract are rare. We describe here a case of a diabetic man who had simultaneous renal cell carcinoma of the right kidney and transitional cell carcinoma of the right ureter complicated with emphysematous pyelonephritis within the tumour parenchyma of renal cell carcinoma. Imaging and pathology are demonstrated.
