Sir,

We have read with interest the article by Kulshreshtha et al. [1] published in your journal. These authors described the first case of primary squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the renal parenchyma in a 60-year-old woman. We have consulted the literature and have found that the first case of SCC of the renal parenchyma has been reported by Terada. [2] The author presents a unique case of a synchronous triple carcinoma of kidney, left ureter, and urinary bladder in a 73-year-old man. The bladder tumor consisted of pleomorphic sarcomatoid carcinoma (80%) and high-grade papillary urothelial carcinoma (20%). The ureter tumor was a pure SCC without the urothelial component. The entire kidney parenchyma was replaced by pure SCC without any urothelial component. The renal pelvis and calices were devoid of apparent tumor cells, but renal SCC was present just beneath the pelvis and calices. In conclusion, the primary SCC of the renal parenchyma described by Kulshreshtha et al. [1] is a very interesting case, but this case should be considered the second SCC of the renal parenchyma reported in the literature.
