Abstract

Neoadjuvant sunitinib has recently been described for the management of renal cell carcinoma. We present the pre and posttreatment images of a 49-year-old male with bilateral biopsy-proven clear cell renal cell carcinoma who underwent treatment with sunitinib prior to nephron-sparing surgery. After four four-week cycles of daily 50 mg sunitinib, the patient demonstrated a dramatic reduction in tumor burden allowing for successful bilateral partial nephrectomy.
