Abstract

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. A clinical diagnosis of the rigtht renal cancer was made, and radical nephrectomy was performed. Histological diagnosis was renal cell cancer pT2N0M0.
This is the 7th reported case among the cases of double cancer of the cervix and the kidney in Japan.
Multiple primary malignancies consist of these two cancers, and the renal carcinoma as an incidental finding with image prosedure were discussed.
