The coexistence of urothelial carcinoma (UC) of renal pelvis and ipsilateral renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is remarkably rare. We present a case of an 80-year-old male who was admitted with a history of the left flank pain, painless hematuria, and passage of blood clot in urine. Computerized tomography revealed a solid mass in the left renal pelvis extending into the calyces and renal parenchyma which gave an impression of UC of renal pelvis. Left nephroureterectomy was performed for tumor in renal pelvis, and histopathological examination showed an infiltrating high-grade papillary UC of the renal pelvis with an incidental clear cell type RCC in the renal parenchyma. This is a rare case of combined renal malignancies in the same kidney. There are only 52 cases reported in English language literature till 2017.
