Distant metastases are common in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Metastatic neoplasms affecting the pancreas account for <2% of all malignancies in the pancreas and RCC is the most common malignancy among them. Metastatic RCC with the nonidentifiable primary renal tumor is extremely rare. In the present study, we reported the case of a 62-year-old male with metastatic RCC to the pancreas without a primary renal tumor mimicking pancreatic cancer. Accurate pathologic diagnosis with immunohistochemistry staining and proper multidisciplinary treatment with targeted therapy may improve the clinical outcomes of these patients.
