Nested variant of urothelial cell carcinoma (NVUC) is a rare histological entity that was described for the first time in 1989 by Talbert and Young.[sup.1] This variant of urothelial cancer is often not recognized and its clinical and pathological characteristics are not completely defined.
Cytological urine evaluation is not a good indicator of the disease because the cellular atypia is mild and not always present, particularly in non-muscle invasive lesions; moreover, the bland cytomorphologic features of NVUC generate diagnostic problems with urinary cytology specimens.
Although NVUC of the urinary tract is very rare, it is important to be aware of its existence to avoid delays in treatment and to orient the surgical strategy.
