SANZ MAYAYO, E. et al. Renal metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2003, vol.27, n.5, pp.387-390. ISSN 0210-4806.

OBJECTIVE: To report the case of a solitary renal metastasis secondary to hepatocellular carcinoma. METHODS: We report the case of a 51 year old patient who on abdominal ultrasonography was revealed a left renal tumour and a hepatic mass incidentally. A TAC showed the left renal tumor measuring 17 cm in size, possible involvement of left renal vein and a tumour mass in the right lobe of the liver. A TAC guided fine needle punction aspiration biopsy demonstrated a malignant hepatic lesion compatible with hepatocarcinoma, and malignant renal cells compatible with renal or adrenal carcinoma. Left radical nephrectomy and right hepatectomy was performed. RESULTS: Histopathologic study confirmed the diagnosis of moderately differentiated trabecular hepatocarcinoma with lymph node and left renal metastasis.

Keywords : Hepatocellular carcinoma; Renal metastasis.
