One third of patients with renal cell cancer have metastatic disease at diagnosis. Until now the outcome of these patients has been poor due to the variable natural history of the disease and the lack of effective therapy. Multitargeted therapy of advanced renal cell cancer appears to be a better option than immunotherapy. We report the case of an elderly patient with skin, lung, bone and brain metastases and widespread intraabdominal disease treated with cytoreductive surgery and sunitinib, resulting in a prolonged response.
