Metastatic RCC arising in a transplant kidney.

Author information

  • 1Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany.


We report a case of metastatic renal cell carcinoma arising in a cadaver transplant kidney 6 years after transplantation. Due to molecular analysis of the tumor tissue we could prove that the carcinoma originated from the male donor. After tumor resection and interruption of immunotherapy, the concomitant bone and lymph node metastases resolved with alpha-interferon and interleukin-2-based immunotherapy.
