A 46-year-old female was referred to our hospital with a complaint of left flank pain. Ultrasongraphy and computed tomography demonstrated a left hydronephroureter due to stenosis with a ureteral mass in the left lower ureter. Retrograde pyelography revealed severe stricture of left lower ureter and brushing cytology showed papanicolaou class III. Ureteral tumor was suspected and left nephroureterectomy with partial cystectomy was performed. Histopathological diagnosis was amyloidosis of the left ureter. There was no evidence of secondary or systemic amyloidosis. Finally, we diagnosed her with localized amyloidosis of the left ureter. Localized amyloidosis of the ureter is a relatively rare condition, and this is the 55th case reported in the Japanese literature.
