Abstract

Primary squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the kidney is an extremely rare entity representing only 0.5-15% of all urothelial cancers. Herein, we reported a rare case of renal cell carcinoma with SCC extended to the pelvis. A 56 year-old female patient referred to the oncology clinic with complaints of pain in the right flank. The CT showed a hypodense renal mass of size approximately 2 × 2.1 cm in the upper pole of the right kidney. High grade urothelial carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma extended to renal capsule, but not pass to perirenal fat. Vascular invasion was present, but perineural invasion was not seen. Ureteral margin was free of tumor. Biopsy showed one hilar lymph node involved with tumor in the near right kidney. A few slightly stones smaller than normal 0.4 × 0.9 cm can be seen in the calyx of the asymptomatic hydronephrosis of left kidney. SCC is one of the rare histological tissues in the kidney and hydronephrosis is the most common complaints in more patients with this malignancy.

Abstract

The coexistent diagnosis of colorectal cancer and renal cell carcinoma is rare. We reported a 55-year-old woman with history of recurrent UTI, who was admitted to Urology Clinic with left flank pain for the evaluation of renal stone. Ultrasound examination revealed a homogenous mass measuring 4.7cm with a calcified focus in left kidney. Macroscopic evaluation revealed a renal mass in lower pole, 5cm in maximum diameter with variegated cut surface. The pathology report showed clear cell carcinoma of kidney. The patient had a colonoscopy report of many polyps in the entire length of colon with a clinical impression of familial adenomatous polyposis since last year but with no genetic confirmatory tests Since last year, the pathology report showed well differentiated adenocarcinoma of colon invading to submucosa with no vascular and perineural invasion in the distal margin of colon. In family history, her passed brother had colon cancer and her sister was alive with colon cancer that had a colostomy. In summary, the existence of both kidney and colon cancers occurs more in elderly patients. Also, the existence of colon adenocarcinoma with numerous polyps can be a risk factor for the second malignancy that the physicians must pay attention to this point in their follow-up.
