Solitary metastasis of cervical carcinoma to the kidney: A case report and review of the literature
Hutchings DC., Sammons EL., Patel NS., Sullivan ME.
A 47-year-old female presented with a history of hematuria and right loin pain 18 months after receiving chemoradiotherapy for advanced cervical carcinoma. A CT scan demonstrated a grossly abnormal right kidney suggestive of either inflammatory or malignant change. A percutaneous biopsy under CT guidance demonstrated squamous cell carcinoma in keeping with metastatic cervical carcinoma. Metastasis of cervical carcinoma to the kidney is extremely rare, with only 8 previous cases reported in the literature. © 2009 UroToday International Journal.
