  • The occurrence of an isolated late recurrence of renal cell carcinoma within the inferior vena cava (IVC) is a rare event. We present a case of a 55-year-old patient with recurrence in the IVC more than 3 years following her initial nephrectomy. The asymptomatic presentation of this patient with recurrent disease emphasizes the importance of close, long-term surveillance.
