Using next-generation sequencing, we determined mutation discordance for cancer genes between matched primary and metastatic tumor samples from patients with renal cell carcinoma. As most precision cancer medicine administers targeted agents on the basis of mutations detected in primary tumors, further investigation into the genomic discordance between primary and metastatic tumor pairs is warranted.
