Case Report



Isolated scar-site metastasis after radical nephrectomy for localized renal cell carcinoma

Mutahir Ali Tunio, Altaf Hashmi, Muhammad Mubarik.

Abstract
Scar-site metastasis following radical nephrectomy is an extremely rare manifestation and sporadically reported in the world literature, but an issue of concern for the urologists and radiation oncologists. The incidence of tumor seedling and scar-site metastases following conventional radical nephrectomies ranges from 0.9% to 1.8% which is comparable to port-site metastases after laparoscopic nephrectomies.
Herein, a rare case of scar-site metastasis, following an open radical nephrectomy in a 36 years old male with a stage pT2N0M0 and Fuhrman grade II renal cell carcinoma, is reported.

Key words: Renal cell carcinoma, nephrectomy, scar recurrence
