Introduction: Sarcomatoid renal-cell carcinoma is a very rare cancer characterised with aggressive course of disease and poor prognosis. At present there are no standards of care for this histologic subtype of renal cell carcinoma resistant to various forms of systemic treatment. Methods: The study describes a case of 58 year old woman after left nephrectomy for clear cell carcinoma with sarcomatoid component and after resection of right-kidney tumour for synchronous clear cell carcinoma who received first-line bevacizumab and temsirolimus under the clinical trial, and then second-line chemotherapy based on gemcitabine and doxorubicin and ifosfamide-based third-line chemotherapy. The patient underwent pulmonary metastasectomy twice, and once a metastasectomy for liver metastases. Conclusions: Surgery (including metastases treatment) followed by the systemic chemotherapy seems to be correct option of treatment in patients with renal cell carcinoma with sarcomatoid features. The development of optimum method of systemic treatment requires further prospective randomised trials.
