Introduction: Malignant tumors of the nose and paranasal cavities are rare tumors that account for less than 1% of body malignancies and 3-5% of malignancies of the head and neck. Metastatic tumors in the sinonasal region are extremely rare, but renal cell carcinoma (RCC) metastases are the most common in this region. The aim of this study was to present the clinical features, diagnostic and therapeutic options in this rare metastatic tumor growth of the nose, and the significance of the postoperative follow-up period of these patients.Case outline: A 70-year-old male patient was examined due to difficulty breathing in the nose on the left side with occasional bleeding. Clinical examination revealed a papillomatous growth in the left vestibule of the nose attached to the nasal septum. The presence of clear cell tumor proliferation was determined pathohistological and further immunohistochemical analysis was advised. Patient had nephrectomy performed due to adenocarcinoma of the kidney in 2011., after which he was not regularly followed. Further diagnostic procedures revealed a metastasis of renal cell carcinoma. After the surgical treatment was completed, the patient was treated with chemotherapy. Conclusion: In patients with observed unilateral growth in the sinonasal region, which occasionally bleeds and leads to nasal obstruction, with the obtained anamnestic data that their RCC has been previously confirmed or treated, it is important to think about metastatic tumor by differential diagnosis. In most patients, early detection of metastasis provides the possibility of surgical treatment and a more favorable response to systemic therapy.
