Renal cell carcinoma
|Abstract:||Spontaneous rupture of the kidney is uncommon. We report a case of spontaneous rupture of the kidney due to a renal cell carcinoma. A 53-year-old man presented with right renal tumor. Computed tomography demonstrated a 70 mm right renal tumor which involved the entire upper pole of the kidney and extended into the renal vein. A few days later, the patient had sudden severe right flank pain. Computed tomography of the abdomen revealed a large perirenal hematoma of the right kidney. Angiography demonstrated no vascular abnormality. Nephrectomy was performed. The histological examination showed rupture of a renal cell carcinoma in the right kidney.|
