Merkel cell carcinoma with kidney metastasis in a 81-year-old man. A rare case report
Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. The prognosis of the disease is considered poor. Secondary metastasis is common, however a secondary metastasis to kidney from Merkel cell is a very rare phenomenon. We report a case of a man with a MCC metastasis to the right kidney. The suggested management is surgery and afterwards a platinum-based chemotherapy.
