A patient with left renal vein occlusion due to carcinoma of the kidney is reported in whom selective renal angiography demonstrated venous drainage from the affected kidney to the portal system. This shunt was effected by the opening up of collateral channels extending from the intrarenal veins via perforating and pararenal capsular veins, retroperitoneal veins and finally by way of the inferior mesenteric to the superior mesenteric vein. The importance of rapid selective injection of large quantities of contrast material in cases of renal carcinoma is emphasized in order to outline the venous drainage of the affected kidney.
