Abstract

A 72-year-old male visited our out-patient clinic with right incidentally found renal tumor, which was discovered by computed tomography (CT) for the follow up study of chronic pancreatitis. CT also showed a left adrenal mass. Further evaluation suggested right renal cell carcinoma and left adrenal metastasis. Right nephrectomy and left adrenalectomy, saving the right adrenal gland, were performed on June 22, 1998. Histology confirmed renal cell carcinoma with contralateral adrenal metastasis.
