A renal cell carcinoma case presenting with bilateral adrenal metastasis
MetadataShow full item record
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common primary malignant tumor of renal parenchyma. RCC metastases most commonly occur in the lung, liver, bone, brain, lymp nodes, and contralateral kidney. Adrenal gland metastasis from renal cell carcinoma is generally ipsilateral, and frequently clinically and functionally silent. Synchronous bilateral adrenal gland metastases from RCC are very rare, and 18 other cases were reported in the literature. In this article, we aimed to present a case of bilateral synchronous adrenal metastases from left kidney RCC in a 58-year-old man with radiologic findings and review the literature.
