Renal tumors correspond to a small part of the total number of neoplasms. However, they can cause metastasis, mainly in the lungs, bones, and liver. In the eye, the uvea is the structure with the highest affinity due to its high vascularity, and its presence is considered a poor prognostic factor for patient survival. A case report of a patient diagnosed with a renal cell tumor with metastasis in multiple body parts, including the choroid, is presented. A review of the literature in this regard is also carried out.
