Renal cell carcinoma with inferior vena cava (IVC) tumor thrombus is a well described clinical entity. We report a case of 64-year-old man that developed an aggressive renal pelvic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with extensive IVC and bilateral iliac vein tumor thrombus. To our knowledge this is the fifth reported case of renal pelvic SCC with IVC tumor thrombus and the first involving the iliac veins. We review the current therapeutic options for treatment of SCC with IVC involvement.
