We describe the case of a 71-years-old male, who was submitted to a left laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for Clear Renal Cell Carcinoma (CRCC). After a 14-year follow-up, MRI scan showed a 5-cm solid lesion of the perineum, that originates from the right corpus cavernosum. A percutaneous trans-perineal biopsy revealed an atypical metastasis of CRCC. To reduce surgical risk during the exeresis of the mass, the patient received 4 cycles of pazopanib as presurgical treatment, with a shrinking of t...

This article presents a case when such treatment was inefficient. When switched to somatostatin analogues treatment, patient's clinical condition and radiologic findings improved. Nonetheless, we were not able to prove the expression of somatostatin receptors in the lung nodules....

Romain Jouffroy, Antoine Pegat-Toquet, Alexandre Bourdiault, Pascal Philippe, Pierre Carli and Benoit Vivien

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 13, 2018

Angiotensin II (AII) is a strong physiological vasopressor hormone. Sartans act as antagonists of AT1 receptors of AII, inducing a vasodilatation via an upregulation of AT2 receptors. In July 2017, in the New England Journal of Medicine, efficiency of AII to increase blood pressure and reduce conventional vasopressors's dose in severe vasodilatory shock refractory to high-dose vasopressors were observed....
