Renal cell carcinoma with secondary hemophagocytic syndrome: A case report

RCC and hemophagocytosis, two events with cytokine secretion and storming, rarely occur. Specific therapy directedagainst this rare disease has not been established, and anecdotal evidence suggests corticosteroid or IVIG may be  effective. Etoposide is also another promising regimen. Our case further elucidates the pathophysiology and contributes to our understanding of cytokine interaction and, possibly, normalizing the immunologic response.
