      Abstract: Over the last two decades, the treatment of metastatic RCC has changed significantly, and the role of surgery is being debated. A 50-year-old man presented with pain in his left loin. An ultrasound, followed by a CT scan, revealed a 17.5 cm left renal mass invading the left suprarenal gland, spleen, and pancreatic tail. Radical nephrectomy through chevron incision under epidural block with general anesthesia was performed. The entire mass was removed en bloc. The estimated blood loss was 300 mL, and no blood transfusions were performed. The operation took approximately 2 h. Histological examination revealed clear cell renal carcinoma with extension into the spleen, pancreatic tail, and diaphragmatic fibers with negative resection margin. The patient discharged after a 3-day uneventful hospital stay. Aggressive surgical removal of a locally invasive renal cell carcinoma is feasible and should be considered in patients with good performance status and no or minimal distant metastases.
