Cutaneous metastasis from renal cell carcinoma is believed to be rare. We present a 66-year-old man operated for kidney cancer 20 years ago and has consulted for a scrotal lesion that had started 20 days. The physical examination revealed an erythematous lesion. A biopsy of the scrotal skin was made. We found a scrotal metastasis of renal cell carcinoma.
