Abstract

Cutaneous metastases from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are uncommon, but may be painful and deforming. A review of the English language literature yields no references regarding the use of radiotherapy in the palliation of cutaneous RCC metastases. We report the first documented case of a patient with a single RCC facial metastatic nodule treated with hypofractionated electron beam radiotherapy followed by administration of sorafenib. The patient achieved a complete resolution of the cutaneous metastasis.
