Abstract

Metastatic renal cell carcinoma is common, but dissemination to the gallbladder is extrem-ely rare. The patient was diagnosed as having distal CBD stone and renal cell carcinoma before she underwent operation, but postoperative pathologic examination revealed clear cell type renal cell carcinoma within the gallbladder. We report a case of renal cell carcinoma with synchronous metastasis to the gallbladder.
