Small bowel metastases from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are very rare. Clinical presentation includes obstruction, bleeding, intussusception and rarely perforation. We report a case of a 48-year-old female presenting a jejunal intussusception due to intestinal metastasis from RCC. To our knowledge, there are only a few such cases reported in the literature (seven cases). However, if considered in the total summary of reported cases with small bowel metastases from RCC, intussusception is a probable cause.
