We report the case of a 57-year-old patient who developed two pancreatic metastases eight years after surgical treatment of a bilateral renal cell carcinoma. A subtotal pancreatectomy with splenectomy was performed. Three years later, the patient is in good general condition and free from any tumor recurrence. Pancreatic metastases of kidney cancers are rare and onset usually late. They are most often fortuitous discovery during the surveillance of the neoplastic disease. The curative treatment is most often surgical.
