1.1    Introduction: Despite the population's greater access to imaging tests and consequent diagnosis of renal cancer in early stages, we continue to encounter neoplasms in locally advanced and metastatic stages.
1.2    Case report: We report a patient admitted to the emergency department of the Hospital Geral de Fortaleza with hematuria and urinary retention. After the patient underwent computed tomography and transurethral resection, a diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma metastasis in the bladder was confirmed based on immune histo chemistry results.
1.3    Discussion: Metastasis of renal cell carcinoma in the bladder is rare, with few cases reported in the literature on synchronic presentation.
1.4    Final considerations: Although rare, we must consider the possibility of metastasis of renal cell carcinoma in patients who present with hematuria, especially in those previously diagnosed with renal cancer.
