[Adenocarcinoma developing in a non-functioning tuberculous kidney. One case (author's transl)].J Urol (Paris). 1980; 86(4):267-70.JU
The authors report a case of necrosed carcinoma oif the kidney presenting clinically with fever and a large abdomino-lumbar palpable mass and developing thirty years after functional exclusion of the kidney by tuberculosis. The two particular features were: displacement by the tumour or calcifications in this known mastic kidney, and the poor vascularisation of a necrosed tumour irrigated by an artery of small calibre. The association of tuberculosis and carcinoima, although rare, is no less well known: discovery of a carcinoma in a nephrectomy specimen (for tuberculosis), discovery of tuberculosis in the parenchyma around a carcinoima of the kidney. The rarest possibility remains that of development of a carcinoma of the kidney in a kidney non-functioning and mastic for years, but is sufficiently rare not to be an argument in favour of the excision of all non-functional tuberculous kidneys after adequate antituberculous therapy.
