The most common tumors which metastatise to kidney are lymphoma, leukemia, and lungs. Metastatic tumors of the kidney are usually small, asymptomatic and occasionally cause flank pain and hematuria. Distinction from renal cell carcinoma is difficult to differentiate and a tissue diagnosis is imperative. Solitary metastasis to kidney from carcinoma tongue is rare. We report a case of isolated renal metastases from tongue cancer to show at the possibility of tumor metastasis, although rare, should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of renal mass.
