Bellini duct carcinoma of kidney derives from collecting duct and is associated with an aggressive course and extremely poor prognosis.Here, we report an interesting case of Collecting Duct Carcinoma (CDC) with Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) thrombus and large retroperitoneal lymph nodes and diffuse desmoplastic reaction. The patient underwent left open radical nephrectomy with IVC thrombectomy and regional lymphadenectomy.
