[Radical nephrectomy in a left pelvic dystopic kidney in a patient with renal cell carcinoma]

The incidence of the renal cell carcinoma in Russia and worldwide remains high. Current literature reports isolated cases of patients who were diagnosed and treated for malignant neoplasms of dystopic kidneys. In addition, the absence of patient complaints and the paucity of non-specific symptoms of pelvic dystopic kidneys lead to late diagnosis of this anomaly and the kidney diseases. This article presents a case study of a radical nephrectomy in a patient with renal cell carcinoma of the left pelvic dystopic kidney.
