Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Abstract A case of renal cell adenocarcinoma which originated from a left native kidney following kidney transplantation, with widespread metastases, including multiple bone and liver metastases, is presented herein. An extensive clinical investigation, including bone marrow biopsy, liver biopsy abdominal computerized tomography, excretory urography and examination of the gastiointestinal tract failed to determine the site of the primary lesion in this patient. Examination at autopsy revealed a small adenocarcinoma of the left native kidney with lobulated nodular capsular invasion and metastases to the bone and liver.
