Abstract

Renal cell carcinoma is a slow growing malignancy of the kidney that has a high propensity for metastasis. It is the most common metastasis reported in the paranasal sinuses. A fifty six year old male patient, an operated case of left renal cell carcinoma presented seven years later with epistaxis. Computerized tomography of the paranasal sinuses and of the abdomen showed a metastatic lesion involving the left nasosinus region and a lesion involving the right kidney with lung metastasis, respectively. Due to the poor prognosis palliative radiotherapy was given.
