A case report of renal artery thrombosis in a patient with occult neuroendocrine tumor
Acute renal artery thrombosis is a rare diagnosis. In absence of underlying cardiac and hypercoagulable etiologies, underlying malignancy must be considered. We present a unique case and review of literature of renal artery thrombosis that led to discovery of an underlying neuroendocrine tumor. Thrombosis was likely provoked by underlying malignancy as well as circulating catecholamines. Patient was successfully treated with anticoagulation and somatostatin analogue.
