Abstract

Carcinoid tumours, most frequently reported in the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts, are exceedingly rare primary renal cancers. Few cases have been published to date. To our knowledge, we report the first case of a primary carcinoid tumour of the kidneys involving the inferior vena cava. We treated a 58-year-old woman with an open radical nephrectomy and cavotomy with thrombectomy. We describe the presentation, investigations and pathology results. We discuss the current experience with carcinoid tumours as a literature review relating to the diagnosis of the disease and the prognosis of patients with this neoplasm. Localized carcinoid tumours of the kidneys, including those involving the vena cava, can be successfully treated with surgical excision.
