Wilms’ tumor recurrences are notably encountered in the tumor bed, less commonly in the lungs. Metastatic involvement ureter markedly uncommon, though extension of the tumor at the presentation of primary tumor is known. We are documenting the metastasis to the ureteric stump which occurred in our patient nearly 2 years after completion of treatment for Wilms’ tumor.
