ABSTRACT: Secondary tumors of the thyroid are very rare, being the kidney the most frequent place of the primary tumor. The majority of these metastases appear months or years after the primary renal tumor. We report the case of an asymptomatic renal carcinoma discovered after the histological analysis of a thyroidectomy piece. The treatment of the primary renal tumor was radical nephrectomy. Three years after diagnosis and treatment the patient is free of relapse.
