Paraneoplastic syndrome of renal cell carcinoma
We report a case of renal cell carcinoma who presented with the classic triad of flank pain, hematuria and fever as well as progressively developed multisystem disease, including a massive anteroseptal myocardial infarction. This was diagnosed as paraneoplastic syndrome of renal cell carcinoma and the decision to proceed with nephrectomy was taken after 3 weeks of acute myocardial infarction, despite predicted high cardiac risk under general anaesthesia; following removal of tumour, all symptoms and signs regressed. He has remained well till the time of last follow-up 4 months later.
