Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with sarcomatoid differentiation is an infrequent entity. In the current era of advanced imaging techniques, RCCs are usually detected in early stages, and a localized giant tumor is rarely encountered. Recently, we encountered a patient with a localized giant RCC, which was 36 cm in the largest dimension and weighing 5.1 kg, which was resected entirely but presented relapse and succumbed within 3 months of surgery.
