ABSTRACT
Pancreatic metastasis from any primary tumor is rare and tumors that most commonly metastasize to the pancreas are lung, kidney and breast cancers. There is currently very limited experience with the surgical resection of isolated pancreatic metastasis(isPMs). Metastasis only to the pancreas is commonly associated with a relatively good prognosis because in such patients this localization typically develops a prolonged period after the initial renal cell carcinoma(RCC) diagnosis. The authors report a case of RCC of the right kidney with solitary metachronous metastasis to the pancreas which occurred 39 months after radical nephrectomy. (Korean J Urol Oncol 2011;9:91-94)
