Only 11 cases of life diagnosis have been described up to now. Contribution of one case report: a female patient presenting with upper GI tract haemorrhage secondary to gastric metastasis from renal cell carcinoma four years after radical nephrectomy. A literature review is made on the cases described up to date in living patients and a pathogenic hypothesis established based on the theoretical dissemination routes for the cases of gastric location of the metastasis.
