We report a 60 year old male presenting with contralateral testicular metastasis 7 years following radical nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma. Testicular metastases from renal cell carcinoma reported in literature are predominantly ipsilateral and invariably on the left side. Usually these are present simultaneously with the renal primary or precede the diagnosis of renal tumors1,2. Delayed contralateral testicular metastatic has not been reported to the best of our knowledge. The case highlights the unique behaviour of renal cell carcinoma with an unusual site of recurrence. The clinical presentation, pathogenesis and management of this rare presentation along with review of recent literature are dicussed.
