abstract

  • • Kidney involvement by metastatic disease can occur as isolated solitary lesions. Some patients will also have the kidney as the first and only site of metastatic involvement. The presence of an isolated renal metastasis should not be considered an end-stage disease, and nephrectomy can be offered for highly selected patients as a therapeutic option.
