A case of renal carcinoma with hepatic dysfunction and hypercalcemia is described. The literature on Stauffer's syndrome has been reviewed and the pathogenesis of this syndrome discussed. It is stressed that the presence of hepatic dysfunction should not be considered a contraindication to surgery since its manifestations have been observed to regress in many eases following removal of the tumor.
