Gastric metastasis from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is rare and associated with poor outcomes. In this case, we report gastric fundic gland metastasis presenting with upper gastrointestinal bleeding in a patient who had a history of nephrectomy due to RCC 14 years ago. Metastasis of any cancer to the stomach is relatively uncommon. Gastric metastasis from RCC, especially isolated fundic gland metastasis, is extremely rare. However, although rare, metastatic RCC to the stomach should be suspected in any patient with a history of RCC who presents with gastrointestinal symptoms.
