Abstract

Metastases of renal carcinoma to the gastrointestinal tract are very seldom reported in the medical literature. Case of 73-year old female patient with clear cell renal carcinoma was described. Cholecystectomy was performed due to cholecystolithias 32 months after nephrectomy. Metastasis of renal carcinoma coexisting with cholecystolithias was revealed on the basis of pathological examination of the excised material.
