Skull metastasis revealing a renal tumor: A case report
Published in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports, the authors present a case of a 65-year-old man who reported after the appearance of a skull mass. This tumefaction developed and had progressively grown up during 9 months.

Neurological examination was normal. Brain imaging revealed a soft tissue lesion in the left parietal bone with marked osteolysis. Peroperative was found a huge oval-shape hemorrhagic and firm mass associated with scalp invasion and bone destruction that was totally resected.

Histopathology revealed renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Pelvic and abdominal CT scan was performed, revealing a large mass on the left kidney with irregular contours and poor definition. The patient was then transferred to urology where he underwent nephrectomy. The patient went then through adjuvant chemotherapy. Clinical and radiological follow up of 12 months did not bring to light tumor recurrence.
