 en Multiple Metastatic Deposits in the Head and Neck Region from a Renal Cell Carcinoma
Ishak, Azlan Iskandar; Pauzi, Suria Hayati Md; Masir, Noraidah & See, Goh Bee

Abstract

Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) presenting with multiple deposits in the head and neck region is unusual. It is not uncommon for a RCC to metastasise to a distant site after years of a tumour-free period, but most of it would be expected to have a single site of deposit. We report a rare case of a patient who had a nephrectomy 10 years earlier for RCC and presented with tumours in the frontal sinus and posterior pharyngeal wall. Radiological imaging and histology confirmed metastatic RCC at both sites.
