Abstract

A 76-year-old woman receieved right thyroidectomy for a right thyroid tumor and the histopathological diagnosis was clear cell carcinoma. Radiological examination revealed left renal cell carcinoma with metastasis to the pancreas and left radical nephrectomy was performed. After the operation, IFN therapy was performed. But the tumor recurred at the same region in 2 years and metastasized to the lung in 3 years, to the right orbit in 6 years. Tumorectomy of the orbital tumor was performed and the histopathological diagnosis was suggestive of metastatic tumor from renal cell carcinoma.
