A case of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) occurring in a 65 year-old male presenting primarily as cutaneous metastasis to the chest, is being reported for its unusual presentation in the form of a skin nodule, even before the development of any urological presentation. RCC had metastasised to the liver as well. This case emphasises the importance of looking for a primary renal cancer in cutaneous metastasis cases as most of these patients have recurrent or multifocal metastatic disease.
