ALVAREZ-MUGICA, Miguel et al. Renal metastasis from an squamous cell carcinoma of the lung: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.10, pp.1197-1199. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: To report a new case of renal metastasis from an squamous cell carcinoma of the lung. Methods: A 60 year old male presented to the outpatient office with an ultrasound finding of renal mass. Results: Imaging test studies showed a heterogeneous mass in the upper pole of the left kidney, involving the pelvis and trapping the renal artery. Conclusions: Clinically recognised or symptomatic metastases to the kidney from pulmonary cancer have been a rare occurrence. Nevertheless, prognosis associated with lung carcinoma metastatic to the kidney is very poor, since the likelihood of a truly solitary metastasis is remote.
