Late involvement of the alimentary tract by carcinoma of the kidney

  • Mansho T. Khilnani

Six cases of involvement of the digestive tract by hypernephroma are presented. In these cases bleeding was a prominent clinical finding. Involvement of the alimentary tract occurred from 6 months to 14 years after removal of the original tumor. In 5 patients, involvement was the result of direct invasion by local recurrence. In these cases, the characteristic roentgen findings were: (1) a large intraluminal lobulated or polypoid mass that occupied and distended the lumen; and (2) continuity of the intraluminal defect, with an extrinsic mass in the kidney bed.
