RCC comprises 2% to 3% of adult tumours and 85% of primary kidney tumours.[sup.4] This type of carcinoma is frequently seen in older adults and rarely in adults under 40.[sup.5] Subtypes of RCC, such as clear cell, chromophilic (papillary), chromophobic, oncocytic and those originating from collective blood, are the most prevalent.
Since our patient is well and without apparent recurrent or metastatic disease 1 year after surgery, the invariably fatal outcome associated with most SRCC (of clear cell origin) may not apply in tumors derived from chromophilic cells.
Papillary (or chromophilic) RCC, which accounts for 7% to 14% of adult renal neoplasms, is associated with a better prognosis than clear cell RCC.[sup.5] We describe a patient diagnosed with papillary RCC found to have occult infiltrating bi-ventricular metastases discovered during triple vessel coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG).
