Renal cell carcinoma is a malignancy with an unpredictable behavior and high incidence of metastatic spread. The most common sites of metastases are lung and bones. However, such metastatic growths have also been found all over the body. Gingival metastasis of renal cell carcinoma is extremely rare.
