Abstract

The most common sites of metastases in renal cell carcinoma RCC are lung and bone. However, unusual sites, including the stomach, are characteristic of RCC.

This article presents a case of a metastatic RCC lung and liver with a symptomatic gastric metastasis treated by a laparoscopic wedge resection LWR.

A 66-year-old woman, diagnosed with RCC underwent a right nephrectomy. During her follow-up, an upper gastrointestinal GI endoscopy showed an ulcerated lesion at the stomach. A biopsy of the specimen revealed metastatic RCC. The patient underwent a palliative LWR and was discharged home 8 days after surgery.

Therefore, LWR is a relatively simple technique with the advantages of minimal invasive access in the treatment of palliative cases.
