Metastatic renal cell carcinoma to prostate

Urology. 2005 Jun;65(6):1227. doi: 10.1016/j.urology.2004.12.049.


Clinically apparent renal cell carcinoma that has metastasized to the prostate is a rare finding. When identified, it has been associated with widespread metastatic disease and short-term survival. We present a case of metachronous renal cell carcinoma found only in the prostate with the longest reported interval of 9 years between radical nephrectomy and clinically apparent disease.
