We report a rare case of metastatic renal cell carcinoma involving the nose and ethmoid sinus, 17 years after initial nephrectomy and diagnosis of Stage T1N0 clear cell renal cell carcinoma. The patient complained of nasal obstruction and epistaxis. Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) was delivered using a higher-than-conventional daily fraction size concurrently with interferon and thalidomide. The patient achieved a complete response both clinically and by magnetic resonance imaging, without any side effects. Late and rare sites of recurrences and treatment options are discussed.
