Abstract

Cutaneous metastasis from renal cell carcinoma is rare. Once metastatic cutaneous involvement of a renal cell carcinoma has occurred, the disease is already widespread and therefore has a very poor prognosis. Herein we report a case of a 59-year-old man who presented with a renal cell carcinoma metastatic to the scalp, lung, brain and contralateral kidney.
