ABSTRACTOnly a few cases of synchronous transitional and clear cell renal carcinoma have been reported in the literature. This patient is a 41-year-old man who presented with left flank pain, occasional macroscopic hematuria and nonproductive cough. Diagnosis of transitional cell tumor was confirmed by tomography, ascending pyelography and biopsy and metastatic renal cell carcinoma in right deltoid muscle was identified by histopathological study. Synchronism is rare and preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Definitive diagnosis is made by pathological studies and often at the metastatic stage.
