Paraneoplastic syndromes are systemic pathologies that may occur due to any malignancy and affect various organ systems. Classical triad in renal cell carcinoma (RCC); palpable mass, side pain, hematuria and is seen in 15% of patients, whereas the probability of developing RCC-related paraneoplastic syndrome is 40%.Paraneoplastic cushing syndrome was found to be associated with RCC in 2% of all cancers and the symptoms associated with cushing syndrome were in remission after surgical excision. In our patient, although serum ACTH, Aldosterone, Cortisol levels were normal, there was resistant hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis and this was not related to cushing syndrome. The complete normalization of the clinical picture and laboratory values after radical nephrectomy suggests that hypokalemic metabolic alcoholosis may be a paraneoplastic syndrome associated with RCC.
