  • The majority of patients with chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (CRCC) are determined to be asymptomatic, with a small minority of patients having the classic triad of flank pain, hematuria, and abdominal mass. This case report describes a 56-year-old man first seen with hemorrhagic shock from retroperitoneal bleeding attributable to a large renal mass. An emergent exploratory laparotomy and radical nephrectomy were performed and the patient has since remained disease free at 3 year follow-up.
