      Abstract

      Late recurrence of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), arbitrarily defined as >10 years post nephrectomy, is rare. The longest known clinical disease-free interval of 36 years was reported by Walter and Gellespie in 1960. We report a case of recurrent RCC presenting 45 years after nephrectomy.
