Paraneoplastic syndromes (PNS) have been defined as a constellation of symptoms and signs seen in patients with malignancy, which cannot be ascribed to the local or distant spread of the tumor.

We describe the incidence of PNS and the association between the syndromes and oncological outcomes in our patients with RCC.
