A 60-year-old man presented with left flank pain, a palpable abdominal mass, and hematuria for months. Computed tomography revealed a large tumor in the left kidney (approximately 17.7 cm in diameter) with evidence of left adrenal, left renal vein, and inferior vena cava (IVC) invasion. He underwent left nephrectomy with IVC thrombectomy. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was used during the whole procedure and the tumor was found in the IVC (Fig-1) before resection.
