FNAC of a scalp swelling in a clinically unsuspected case led to diagnosis of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Presence of sheets of polygonal cells with round uniform nuclei with vacuolated cytoplasm helped in arriving at diagnosis. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of clear cell type of RCC. The patient is doing fine six months after management by surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Regular follow-up is necessary to diagnose the recurrences.
