A proportion of hereditary upper urinary tract urothelial carcinomas are misclassified as sporadic according to a multi-institutional database analysis: proposal of patient-specific risk identification tool
BJU International, 06/29/2012

Recognition of such potential and application of a patient–specific checklist upon diagnosis will allow identification and appropriate clinical and genetic management for patient and family.
