Abstract

Brain metastases from renal carcinoma may appear even a long time after surgical treatment of the primary tumor. The authors present 2 series of patients, one of which has already been published and the other new, for a total of 4 cases of brain metastasis from renal carcinoma with late onset, which occurred 13, 17, 26 and 12 years after primary surgical treatment. The other cases described in the literature were also critically reviewed.
