    Conventional renal cell carcinoma (Grawitz tumour) represents the most frequent malignant tumour of the kidneys in adulthood. Metastasis occurs in more than 25% of cases, most frequently involving the bones (osteolytic metastases), lungs, brain, liver, adrenal glands and contralateral kidney. A single solitary metastasis is rare. Metastasis of the primary tumour occurs even many years after its removal. Pancreatic metastases are very rare and only anecdotal reports exist in literature. The authors describe here 2 case reports involving the diagnosis and successful removal of this rare metastasis. Both patients currently show no signs of tumour generalisation. Pancreatic metastases from renal cell carcinoma are a very rare entity. Patients with such metastases have a good prognosis if these are radically removed. .. View More»
