The Teaching Point

Synchronous double primary tumors involving the kidney and the ovaries are extremely rare. The presence of a cystic-solid adnexal mass, associated with signs of pelvic organ invasion and peritoneal/umbilical nodules and the coexistence of a strongly and inhomogeneously enhancing renal mass strongly suggested the diagnosis of epithelial ovarian malignancy and renal cell carcinoma, respectively in our case.

Abstract
The simultaneous presence of primary carcinomas in the same patient is uncommon and synchronous primary tumors involving the kidney and ovary are extremely rare. There are a few reports in the English literature of synchronous primary malignancies of the kidney and the ovaries, but no data regarding their imaging features. We present a case of an elderly woman, diagnosed with bilateral ovarian clear cell carcinomas and a simultaneous clear cell carcinoma of the right kidney, evaluated by multidetector CT and MR imaging.
