GIMENEZ BACHS, José Miguel et al. Late lymoh node metastasis in renal cell carcinoma: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.5, pp.576-579. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report one case of late metastasis of a clear cell carcinoma treated by radical surgery. Methods/Results: Patient with history of radical nephrectomy and lymphadenectomy six years before presenting with regional lymph node metastasis in a follow-up diagnostic test. After treatment with immunotherapy, stopped because of intolerance, surgery of the metastatic lymph node mass was decided. Conclusions: Renal cancer is an unpredictable tumor in terms of oncological behaviour, so that it may metastasize any time in its evolution, even after radical surgery and several years free of disease. Surgery for the metastases of renal cancer is a good therapeutic option, with good long-term results, when they are isolated and accessible to surgery.
