Abstract

Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma tends to exhibit local spread with a low incidence of distal metastases. The majority of distant metastases are to the lungs and renal involvement is extremely rare. We present a rare case of metastatic renal tumour originating from Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma. Fifty year old male diagnosed two years back as Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma, underwent complete chemo radiation and was clinically free of disease for about two years, now presented with gross haematuria. Physical examination revealed left renal mass which was confirmed on CT scan as heterogeneously enhanced mass in upper part of kidney. Nephrectomy was done. On histopathological examination, well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of kidney was reported.
