    Abstract

    Renal tumors other than renal cell carcinoma rarely may invade the main renal vein and inferior vena cava. A case is reported of carcinosarcoma of the right kidney composed of transitional cell and giant cell elements with invasion into the inferior vena cava. Obstruction of the renal vein should be considered in patients with transitional cell carcinoma and an ipsilateral nonvisualized kidney on excretory urography.
