A ­case of an asso­ci­a­tion ­between ery­the­ma nodo­sum (EN) and ­white ­cell aden­o­car­cin­o­ma of the kid­ney in a 56 ­year-old ­male is report­ed. The instru­men­tal pro­ce­dures led to the dis­cov­ery of a com­plete­ly asymp­to­mat­ic ­renal neo­plasm in a ­patient ­whose ­only man­i­fes­ta­tion was EN on ­both ­legs. It is ­argued ­that EN ­could be a par­a­neo­plas­tic syn­drome pre­ced­ing the devel­op­ment of ­renal aden­o­car­cin­o­ma.
