Targeted therapies used in the treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are known to have the potential for cardiotoxicity and should be used with caution in patients with cardiac comorbidities. A retrospective review identified two RCC cases treated with sorafenib in the context of preexisting cardiomyopathy. Sorafenib therapy resulted in disease stabilization of progressing RCC for both cases, without worsening of cardiac ejection fraction. Further evaluation of the cardiac safety of sorafenib in patients with cardiomyopathy is warranted.
