Abstract

Massive hemoperitoneum due to spontaneous rupture of renal cell carcinoma is a rare presentation during emergency laparotomy. A 60-year-old female patient presented with severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and abdominal distension. A massive hemoperitoneum secondary to ruptured left kidney tumor was found during laparotomy. Histology confirmed a papillary renal cell carcinoma. Ruptured renal cell carcinoma can be a cause of bleeding into the retroperitoneum space. Emergency sonography and laparotomy are advocated for its management.
