The case is a 55-year old woman whose mother died of gastric cancer. In 1984 she underwent radiotherapy for cervical squamous cell carcinoma stage IIIb and had since been under the periodical observations. In 1987 she happened to undergo abdominal X-ray CT scans, and with an image of tumor mass revealed in the right kidney, she was admitted to our hospital.
