Gastric metastasis of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is unusual and few cases have been reported in the literature. We here report a 63 years-old male with multiple gastric and concomitant other organ metastasis of RCC 5 years after left radical nephrectomy. He presented with iron deficiency anemia without any gastrointestinal symptom. Radyological imagings showed multipl polypoid masses in the stomach and metastatic tumors in pancreas, lung and bilateral adrenal glands. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed multiple gastric “volcano-like” polypoid masses in the stomach. Histopathological examination and immunohistochemical staining showed the features of metastasis of clear cell carcinoma.
