The clinical presentation of renal cell carcinoma in the ovary is rare and may closely resemble that of other ovarian clear cell tumors. Metastatic renal cell carcinoma was diagnosed in a patient who presented with a right adnexal mass and no other significant past medical history. The gross appearance of the tumor suggested a primary ovarian neoplasm. However, microscopic and immunohistochemical analysis revealed involvement of both ovaries by a clear cell tumor with features of renal cell carcinoma. A renal mass was subsequently discovered. We discuss the clinical, histologic, and immunohistochemical features of this tumor and the features of other clear cell neoplasms in the differential diagnosis.
