Cystic metastases in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are very rare. Very few case reports can be found in literature. Retroperitoneal cystic nodal metastases have been reported in head and neck tumors. We present a very interesting case of RCC that had disseminated intraperitoneal and retroperitoneal cystic metastases that mimicked systemic hydatidosis. A detailed color Doppler sonography was followed by plain and contrast-enhanced computed tomography on a 64-slice multi-detector scanner. Imaging features were more in favor of right RCC with cystic lymph nodal metastasis. However, rare possibility of incidental hydatid disease with RCC could not be ruled out. Biopsy from left inguinal lymph nodes was taken, which confirmed metastatic deposits from RCC.
