Department of Urology, Bedford Hospital NHS Trust, Bedford, United Kingdom. Electronic address: [Email]


Cutaneous metastasis from renal cell carcinoma is rare, typically involves the head and neck, and occurs inlatestage disease, usually in the context of previously diagnosed and treated primary tumour, and after lymphaticspread. This patients' initial presentation of clear cell renal cell carcinoma was a cutaneous lesion to the ipsilateral abdominal wall. The primary renal tumour was subsequently demonstrated on CT; this also showed no apparent lymph nodeinvolvement despite cutaneous metastatic disease. The patient underwent radical laparoscopic nephrectomy and biological therapy, but disease progression continued, and he passed away within 6 months of diagnosis.
