PMID:  327975     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Renal cell carcinoma may develop in up to 25% of patients with Lindau-von Hippel disease who survive the earlier manifestations of this disease, and this neoplasm may frequently be bilateral. With early detection of such lesions, operative cure of renal cell carcinoma is more likely in these patients. However, some patients may need to undergo bilateral nephrectomy for cure. Such a patient may benefit from cadaver renal transplant in spite of the increased risk of cancer in immunosuppressed patients. We present such a case in a patient with Lindau-von Hippel disease.
