Abstract

Renal metastases of the lung tumours are most frequently clinically silent, and their diagnosis is confirmed by postmortem examination. This study presents a patient with diagnosed metastasis of squamous cell lung carcinoma to the kidney. Fifteen months after a tumour of the left lung was removed, ultrasonography and computer tomography reveale the presence of a tumour of the left kidney. Left-sided nephrectomy was performed and histopathological examination confirmed the presence of metastatic squamous cell carcinoma.
