Preferred Abstract (Original): 

Tumor to tumor metastasis is a well-known but a rare event. Lung carcinoma, being as a donor and renal cell carcinoma (RCC) serving as a recipient tumor are the most commonly observed tumor to tumor metastatis. Renal cell carcinoma serving as recipient of metastatic breast carcinoma is very rare, and to our knowledge only four cases including three autopsy cases have been reported to date. Herein, we report a case of a 69-year-old woman with invasive lobular carcinoma of the breast that metastased to RCC and internal genital organs including right ovary, uterus and as well as to a benign tumor, lipoleiomyoma.
