CARDIAC METASTASIS INDUCED WITH RENAL CELL CARCINOMA: A CASE REPORT AND THERAPEUTIC CHALLENGE

Piyush Mohania, Anjali Shrama, Gaurav Rajauria

Abstract


Pericardial metastases are the most common type of cardiac metastasis, followed by epicardial and myocardial metastasis. Endocardial metastases, usually localized to the right heart, are rare and usually associated with tumors with endovascular growth such as renal, liver and uterine cancers. Cardiac metastasis from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is very rare. We were reported the case of 40-year-old man with cardiac metastasis induced with renal cell carcinoma. As new diagnostic technologies and improved survival of oncological patients may increase the incidence of metastatic cardiac carcinogenicity in the future and awareness to their existence and knowledge of their presentation.
