Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is known as a highly aggressive malignancy with frequent metastasis that the major sites being lungs, lymphatic ganglions, bones, liver and brain. Cutaneous metastasis is uncommon with only a few reported cases in the literature. We report a case of a women patient aged 49 years old with RCC who underwent nephrectomy and 8 months previously, she consulted the dermatological service due to the development of recent skin lesions that had been diagnosed as cutaneous metastasis of her RCC. The treatment has associated surgical excision and systemic therapy based on sunitinib.
