Cardiac metastases from renal cell carcinoma without vena caval involvement are extremely rare. We report 49-year-old man who presented symptoms of heart failure and thrombocytopenia. Computed tomography and echocardiography revealed a left renal tumor and a right ventricular mass without vena caval involvement. His symptoms progressed rapidly and he died at nine days following diagnosis of the right ventricular tumor.
