Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a malignant tumor, a known sequel of which is metastasis to the heart via intraluminal venous extension (the inferior vena cava). However, tumor metastasis without inferior vena cava involvement is rare. Cardiac metastasis might necessitate surgical excision even in the very advanced stages of the disease. Here we describe a patient with RCC extension to the heart without evidence of a mass in the venous system. (Iranian Heart Journal 2021; 22(4): 156-158)
