Renal vein thrombosis in transitional cell carcinoma

Cilliers G. ; Naidoo A. ; Ackermann C. ; Parsons J.J. ; Andronikou S. (2007)


A rare case of renal transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) associated with bland thrombus of the renal vein extending into the inferior vena cava is described. Tumour thrombus in renal cell carcinoma is frequently encountered, but only very rarely occurs with TCC. Bland renal vein thrombosis occurring with renal TCC has not been described before. Contrast enhanced computed tomography assisted in distinguishing between bland and tumour thrombosis and aided in surgical management. © 2007 The Authors.
