ABSTRACT

A 62-year-old man was given a diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer (T4N1M0, stage IIIB) in November 2007. He received chemotherapy and concurrent radiotherapy, which yielded a partial remission. In September 2008, bilateral renal metastasis was detected. Chemotherapy was carried out, but it was not effective in reducing renal metastasis. Finally, the renal function was totally lost in June 2009. Because lung cancer had since been well managed, and no metastasis other than kidney had been detected, bilateral nephrectomy was performed. A remission of more than two years was obtained after radiotherapy for residual tumor.
