GOMEZ GARCIA, I. et al. Metastasis in renal graft of primary renal adecarcinoma. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.6, pp.458-461. ISSN 0210-4806.

Acquired cystic renal disease (A.C.R.D.) is a risk factor for the development of renal carcinoma in the patient’s own kidney after renal transplant (R.T.). development of a primitive tumor in the renal graft is infrequent, but the presence of metastasis of an epithelial tumor is very rare. This is the second case reported in the literature of metastasis of an epithelial tumor in the renal graft and the first case described of renal cell carcinoma metastasis (R.C.C.) in the renal graft. This paper describes the case of a patient with a normally functioning renal transplant and A.C.R.D. who develops RCC in his own kidney, with metastasis in the renal graft.

Keywords : Acquired renal cystic disease; Renal transplant; Renal adenocarcinoma.
