One third patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) have metastatic disease at presentation. Eight to 15% patients present with metastases in head and neck region. Skull bone metastasis is a very rare presentation. Herein we report a case of 56 year male RCC with parieto-occipital bone metastasis. He underwent radiotherapy for skull lesion and cytoreductive nephrectomy for right renal mass. Metastatic RCC is a diagnostic dilemma especially when there is no clue in clinical presentation. An unusual vascular osteolytic lesion in head and neck in middle-aged person should be dealt with a high index of suspicion for RCC.
