This article presents the case of a 56-year-old woman who developed a tumour recurrence following radical nephrectomy. This was invading the descending colon and causing severe gastrointestinal haemorrhage. Angiography revealed neovascularization from T11 and T12 intercostal arteries, which were successfully embolized percutaneously.
