The simultaneous occurrence of renal adenocarcinoma and a solitary pulmonary metastasis provides a special challenge in management. In 1 such case resection of the primary lesion and 2 pulmonary metastases was accomplished in a single procedure, using a long midline incision incorporating a sternal splitting component. The advantages of this approach are discussed.
