Apart from breast carcinoma, malignancies rarely spread to the skin. Although renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has a high metastatic potential, metastasis to the skin is extremely rare. We present a case of a 50-year-old male with multiple nodular cutaneous metastases. Four months postnephrectomy, he was diagnosed cytologically and confirmed histopathologically. Such patients must be subjected to long-term clinical observation. Clinicians should pay attention to cutaneous lesions appearing in the patients with known case of internal malignancies. Prompt diagnosis and treatment will have its bearing on the eventual outcome.
