Literature reports intra-thyroid involvement of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) as a very rare and late event after kidney cancer diagnosis. Nevertheless, it must be investigated and differentiated from primary thyroid nodules. This is important in order to give the patient the best and earliest treatment. In fact the presence of thyroid metastasis of RCC is often the expression of a systemic disease and therefore the patient should have a complete total body examination in order to rule out any other organ involvement. In the case of a solitary metastasis, the therapeutic approach is thyroidectomy giving the patient a survival benefit. Here, a case report of a solitary RCC thyroid metastatic nodule associated with an omolateral internal jugular neoplastic thrombosis is presented together with a review of the literature on this matter.
