Early-stage sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma: multidetector CT findings (Journal article)

Giannakis, D./ Tsili, A. C./ Zioga, A./ Tsampoulas, K./ Sofikitis, N.

A 64-year-old woman was referred for multidetector CT examination of the abdomen due to an incidental right renal mass, found on routine sonographic examination. A lower pole renal mass was detected on CT, with no signs of invasiveness or metastatic disease. The mass was sharply demarcated and heterogeneously enhanced, the last finding suggestive of malignancy. Pathologically, the tumor was an early-stage sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma. The patient remains well, with no signs of recurrence or metastases 18 months after surgery.
