A 45-year-old woman with metastatic renal cell carcinoma to the nasal septum was presented in this study. Metastatic neoplasms of the paranasal region are so rare that they have been usually reported as case reports. Although there are reported cases of renal cell carcinoma to the paranasal sinuses, this case was unique in that it is an isolated metastasis to the nasal septum. The clinical presentation, radiologic and pathologic investigations, and the treatment of patient with surgery and chemotherapy with sunitinib malate (Sutent) were discussed.
