Abstract

We present the case of a 61-year old man with intracranial recurrence of transitional cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis presenting as diabetes insipidus. Metastatic infiltration of the pituitary stalk was demonstrated by magnetic resonance imaging when cerebral computerized tomography scanning was unhelpful. Successful treatment followed, comprising radiotherapy and intranasal desmopressin.
