Distant metastasis to the ureters is uncommon. Moreover, isolated ureteric metastasis from gastric cancer is extremely rare and only sporadically reported. It indicates an advanced stage and carrier a very poor prognosis. We describe a case of synchronous bilateral ureteric metastasis from stomach adenocarcinoma after gastrectomy and chemoradiation. To our knowledge, it is the first case published in the literature with such presentation.
