Abstract

Metastases of internal tumors to the oral cavity are unusual and in most cases involve maxilla and mandible. Metastases to the gingival soft tissue are extremely rare. Reporting a new clinical case of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) metastasis with an unusual site. Metastatic involvement of gingival tissue with renal cell carcinoma is an extremely rare clinical event. It is usually associated with involvement of an internal organ. We present a case of 47-year-old male patient diagnosed with RCC-associated gingival metastasis- who underwent radical nephrectomy. The wide range of localizations and forms of metastatic presentation of renal carcinoma should obligate physicians to be alert during the follow-ups.
