CORTES DURAN, Petra María  and  LOPEZ SERRANO, Beatriz. Passive tobacco exposure in the home: an invitation for thinking. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.3, pp.234-237. ISSN 2386-8201.

The present is the case of a female patient exposed to environmental tobacco smoke in her home for more than 35 year-old in a reduced space. She was diagnosed a renal tumor (transitional cells carcinoma of the renal pelvis), being this type of tumor caused by tobacco consumption. Our intention is to generate some thinking around passive tobacco exposure in the home while incorporating our anti-smoking advice to this regard to our patients. According to data from the Spanish Ministry of Health, the exposure of non-smokers to air polluted by tobacco smoke causes 1,498 deaths each year.
