Treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma has radically changed during the last decade with the approval of new drugs, antiangiogenic agents and mammalian targets of rapamycin (m-TOR) inhibitors. The outcome of metastatic clear-cell carcinoma has been significantly improved, while other entities such as metastatic papillary renal cell carcinoma are still associated with a poor prognosis. To date, there is no standard guideline for metastatic non clear cell carcinoma. We report the case of a 68-year-old patient with a pulmonary metastatic evolution of a papillary kidney cancer who has had more than 3 years disease progression-free survival and is under ongoing treatment with m-TOR inhibitors.
