Renal artery thromboembolism is a rare cause of acute kidney injury. Hypercoagulable state is an important reason renal arterial thrombosis may occur. Cancer cells activate coagulation systems via various pathways, leading to the development of a prothrombogenic state. Presently described is the very rare condition of renal artery thromboembolism in a patient with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer.
