Article title

Papillary renal cell carcinoma – case report of a patient with disseminated disease treated with pazopanib with several years of survival against reviewing current literature

Languages of publication
Papillary renal cell carcinoma is the second most common histological type of renal cell carcinoma with distinct cytogenetics, histology and prognosis. It exhibits significantly poorer response to molecular targeted therapies, which are about the progress in clear cell carcinoma. We present an overview of the treatment trials and report a casuistic case of metastatic disease controlled for several years with pazopanib.
