Primary synovial sarcoma of kidney: A rare tumor with an atypical presentation.

Dassi V, Das K, Singh BP, Swain SK - Indian J Urol (2009)

Bottom Line: Here we present a case of a 20-year-old female presenting PSS of the left kidney with caval thrombus.The diagnosis was corroborated by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).Similar cases of PSS of kidney with tumor extension in the inferior vena cava are extremely rare and to date, approximately three cases have been reported in the literature.

ABSTRACT
Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a tumor of the soft tissues with a unique chromosomal translocation t(X;18)(p11.2;q11.2) that can be detected by polymerase chain reaction in tissue homogenates. Here we present a case of a 20-year-old female presenting PSS of the left kidney with caval thrombus. The diagnosis was corroborated by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Similar cases of PSS of kidney with tumor extension in the inferior vena cava are extremely rare and to date, approximately three cases have been reported in the literature.

Figure 0003: Macroscopically, tumour seen replacing whole of kidney with tumour thrombus in left renal vein

Mentions: Renal cell carcinoma was suspected pre-operatively. Intraoperatively, a tumour mass was seen replacing the whole kidney. Left radical nephrectomy was performed and left renal vein ligated flush with the IVC after milking the thrombus into the left renal vein. Macroscopic examination of the specimen revealed a tumor of size 12.8 × 11 × 4.5 cm, replacing the entire renal parenchyma, involving pelvi-calyceal system and medulla with thin rim of cortex seen all around. Tumor thrombus was seen within the lumen of left renal vein [Figure 3].
