Paraneoplstic leukocytosis, seen in some solid tumors, is due to increased production of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, interleukin 6 and other cytokines by tumor cells. Though its association with malignancy of lung, ovary and bladder is not uncommon, but it is rarely seen with renal cell carcinoma. We are presenting such an association with papillary cell carcinoma of the kidney.
