ABSTRACT
Abstract: Cardiac involvement by intravascular protruding renal cell carcinoma is a well-recognised phenomenon. It most commonly occurs through inferior vena cava extension. Here, we report a case of a lower lobar lung metastasis from renal cell carcinoma involving the left atrium via the inferior pulmonary vein in a patient presenting with von Hippel–Lindau disease. Complete surgical resection was achieved under cardiopulmonary bypass.
