Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of kidney is a rare entity. It behaves aggressively in case of kidney. It is usually diagnosed at an advance stage associated with poor outcome. Renal squamous cell carcinoma is usually associated with stones. Chronic irritation due to stone cause metaplasia of lining epithelium resulting in transformation of squamous cell carcinoma which is rare but the most fatal complication. Here we are presenting a case of renal squamous cell carcinoma associated with stones.
