Title A Rare Finding of a BRAF Mutation in Renal Cell Carcinoma with Response to BRAF-Directed Targeted Therapy.
Abstract Text Whole exome sequencing can identify somatic mutations in malignant tumors and allow for personalized and novel treatment of common malignancies. Mutations in the BRAF gene are rare in renal cell carcinoma, and thus, BRAF inhibitors are not considered standard in the treatment of these cancers. Here, we report a case of a patient with a rare BRAF-mutated metastatic renal cell carcinoma who obtained a good clinical response to BRAF inhibition. This case underscores the value of precision medicine in an era of rapidly evolving therapeutics for malignancies.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.
