Abstract We report one case of solitary gastric metastasis from renal cell carcinoma following radical excision of the primary tumour 14 years previously. During evaluation for a severe anaemia with melaena, a patient underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy that evidenced the presence of a small polypoid lesion in the body of the stomach. Endoscopic biopsy revealed renal cell carcinoma. There was no evidence of further metastatic disease. A subtotal gastric resection with Roux-en-Y gastrojejunal reconstruction was performed. After 6 months follow-up, the patient was disease-free. This case confirms the potential of renal cell carcinoma for late and solitary metastasis with circumscribed local invasiveness and suggests that endoscopic resection may be feasible.
