SANTERINI BAEZ, Florencia  e  COLLAZO PEDREIRA, Elizabeth. Oral metastasis of renal cell carcinoma. A case report and literature review. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2022, vol.24, n.39, e408.  Epub 20-Abr-2022. ISSN 0797-0374.

Metastatic tumors to the oral cavity are rare, representing only 1% of malignant oral neoplasms. These metastatic tumors occur more frequently in the jaws than in soft oral tissues.

This article describes the case of a 75-year-old patient with a history of clear cell renal carcinoma who seeks care because of the sudden appearance of a tumor lesion in the upper left alveolar ridge. An excision biopsy was performed with a presumptive diagnosis of a metastatic tumor or potential reactive lesion. The pathology report confirmed the diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma metastasis.

Oral metastatic tumors usually present a bad prognosis with a low survival rate. It is important to examine patients thoroughly and consider their medical records, as they are sometimes diagnosed late.

Palavras-chave : oral metastasis; renal cell carcinoma; oral mucosa.
