abstract

  • Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with rhabdoid features is an uncommon and highly aggressive malignancy. We report a case of adult clear-cell RCC with extensive rhabdoid features treated with the tyrosine kinase inhibitor sorafenib. A review of the literature summarizes important aspects of this malignancy. We discuss clinical and histological findings as well as the patient’s response to sorafenib therapy.
