Diagnosis of synchronous primary genitourinary tumors are uncommon. Thus far, about 50 cases of synchronous renal tumors have been reported in the literature. We present for the first time a case of a 83-year-old man presenting in the same kidney two separate primary malignancies, a TCC of the renal pelvis and a papillary renal cell carcinoma Type 1. Considered the increased incidence of genitourinary tumors, in presence of a small renal tumor with hematuria, in our opinion, is necessary to pay attention to the diagnostic phase for the chance to highlight an urothelial cancer.
