Metastatic lesions to the jaw bones are seldom found, but when observed pose a great diagnostic dilemma to the pathologists. In such cases, immunohistochemical markers and imaging modalities play a significant role in enabling the diagnosis. This case report discusses one such perplexing case of a metastasized renal cell carcinoma to the mandible with undiagnosed primary neoplasm. Discussed here is a case of a 66-year-old male who presented with a proliferative mass involving the left alveolobuccal complex.
