Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present the case of a patient with an adenocarcinoma of the colon associated with an oncocytoma of the kidney. A left colonic cancer was diagnosed at colonoscopy and an incidental finding of a left renal mass was noted, with a staging computerized tomography scan. Following a left hemicolectomy and a left nephrectomy, the pathological report confirmed the presence of a colonic adenocarcinoma and revealed that the left renal mass was an oncocytoma. This case report reviews the management decisions associated with incidental renal masses as well as the treatment of synchronous neoplasia.
