Abstract

We report a case of renal cell carcinoma with solitary metachronous contralateral adrenal metastasis occurring 23 years after radical nephrectomy. The patient was treated with adrenalectomy. He is alive with no evidence of disease 1 year postoperatively. Solitary metachronous contralateral adrenal metastases from renal cell carcinoma are rare clinical conditions that may occur very late. Metastasectomy is advocated and is probably beneficial for limited metastatic renal cell cancer.
