Cholestasis due to liver metastasis is more common than primary liver carcinoma.
Common cancers that metastasize to the liver are colorectal cancer followed by breast and pancreas, to the best of our knowledge very few malignancies can cause paraneoplastic cholestasis which are renal cell carcinoma followed by lymphoproliferative disease and cancer prostate.
Stauffer syndrome is a paraneoplastic cholestasis due to renal cell carcinoma, commonly cause fever and cholestatic liver function in the absence of any metastatic involvement, treating renal cell carcinoma usually cures liver cholestasis.
We present a patient with fever and advanced renal cell carcinoma in the absence of liver involvement.
Due to end stage renal carcinoma another comorbidity, patient and family opt to palliative management.
