Epistaxis in renal carcinoma.


A 62-year-old man presented with recurrent epistaxis and a mass in the left nostril. Histological examination of the excised tissue showed clear cell carcinoma and he was found to have an asymptomatic carcinoma of the right kidney. A year after right nephrectomy, excision of the left maxilla, and radiotherapy he was well with no sign of recurrence. Early recognition of this rare condition and excision of both primary and metastatic tumours are recommended.
