Annually, bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract occurs in approximately 100 per 100000 people [1-3] and neoplasm accounts for (1-4%) of the cases. Renal cell carcinoma constitutes 3% of all adult malignancies and at the time of diagnosis, almost (25-30%) of patients have metastases. Gastrointestinal bleeding from renal cell carcinoma metastases is an uncommon and underrecognized manifestation of this disease. In this case report, we describe a case of upper gastrointestinal bleeding caused by metastatic renal cell carcinoma to the second part of duodenum.
