Tumor Seeding With Renal Cell Carcinoma After Renal Biopsy

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Tumor seeding following biopsy of renal cell carcinoma is extremely rare with an incidence of 1:10.000. In this paper two cases with multiple recurrent RRC metastasis in the biopsy tract following biopsy of renal tumor is presented and the current literature is shortly discussed.

fig1: CT scan showing relapse (arrow) of RCC in biopsy tract after fine needle biopsy of small renal mass.

Mentions: Two years after the initial biopsy, the patient undergoes surgery for recurrence along the biopsy canal in the right abdominal wall (Fig. 1). A second recurrence in the abdominal wall is excised 1 year later and a third local recurrence is treated after another 6 months with resection of 12th rib and several small recurrences on the psoas muscle. Four years and 5 months after initial surgery, the patient has yet another local recurrence and undergoes surgery once more. All of the incidents showed RCC and all were with negative surgical margins in spite of several relapses.
