ABSTRACT
Introduction. Metastatic renal cell carcinoma can spread from the primary renal cell carcinoma to other organs, practically to all tissues. Distant metastases – to the tissue of the head and neck – are transferred through the blood and lymph vessels. A case of such a metastasis localized on the palate is relatively rare and therefore poses interesting material for description. Objective. Analysis of a case of cell renal carcinoma meastasis of the palate in a 67-year-old patient, based on clinical observations and medical publications. Conclusion. Clear cell carcinoma metastases to distant organs are often the first sign of a covertly progressing disease of which the primary tumour is localized in the kidney. The treatment is surgical, and prognosis is poor in the case of distant metastases since tumours recur even after a few years.
