Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most frequent malignancies of the genitourinary tract and has the poorest prognosis of all urologic tumors. It often causes metastatic lesions, and although rare, the skin also can be involved. Cutaneous lesions rarely are the primary signs of RCC. We report a case of RCC with solitary nodular cutaneous metastasis on the right forearm that was seen before the primary tumor was diagnosed; there was no other organ involvement.
