Abstract

Sinonasal region as a site of metastasis is a rare occurrence. About 30 % of cases of renal cell carcinoma first come to clinical attention because of metastasis, and may present with symptoms owing to the site of metastasis. Metastatic renal cell carcinoma to the sinonasal region is rarely documented in literature. We hereby report an uncommon clinical presentation of an occult renal cell carcinoma, presenting with epistaxis secondary to metastatic renal cell carcinoma in a 63 year old male patient.
