Successful surgical treatment of renal cell carcinoma in a transplanted kidney from a cadaveric donor: report of a case.

Author information

  • 1Department of Surgery (II), Chiba University School of Medicine, Japan.


Posttransplant renal cell carcinoma (RCC) usually arises in the native kidneys of renal transplant recipients rather than in the transplanted kidney. This report describes a case of RCC that developed in the transplanted cadaveric kidney in a 37-year-old male recipient 9 months after transplantation. An en bloc radical transplant nephrectomy was performed, and he has subsequently remained stable on hemodialysis for 3 years without any sign of recurrence.
