Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has a potential to metastasize to almost any site and this may occur many years following nephrectomy. We present 6 cases with uncommon sites of metastasis: 4 patients presented with distal pancreatic metastasis and 2 with duodenal/head of the pancreas metastasis. Time to metastatic disease varied from 1 to 19 years following renal surgery. For patients are alive and 2 succumbed to their disease. Long-term survival can be achieved with aggressive surgical excision of disease. © 2014 Espinoza, Hassani, Vaishampayan, Shi, Pontes and Weaver.
