Abstract

Metastatic lesions of the pancreas are rare and account for less than 2% of all pancreatic malignancies. Renal cell carcinoma is most commonly responsible for pancreatic metastasis. Meanwhile, the pancreas is an uncommon site of renal cell carcinoma metastasis. We report the case of a patient presented with renal tumor associated to synchronous pancreatic metastasis at the Urology department in the Rabta Hospital, who underwent a radical nephrectomy followed by immunotherapy. We will specify through a review of the literature the epidemiological, clinical, prognostic and therapeutic effects of pancreatic metastases of renal cancer.
