Abstract

Introduction: Metastatic renal cell carcinoma is often found in distant organs, including lung, bone, brain,and liver. Metastases to the vagina are extremely rare. Case Report: The authors present a case of renal cell carcinoma metastasis to the anterior vaginal wall four months after nephrectomy in a 56-year-old patient. The vaginal lesions were excised. After two years the patient had no signs of recurrence or the disease progression. Conclusion: Vaginal metastases should be considered in differential diagnosis of female renal cell carcinoma patients presenting with vaginal bleeding of mass.
