For staff and students of EAST CHESHIRE NHS TRUST

Title: Anterior knee pain: an unusual presentation of renal cell carcinoma
Metastasis of any kind to the patella is rare. Metastasis to the patella causing symptoms representing the first presentation of underlying malignancy is rarer still.

The initial diagnosis was osteoarthritis but after continued symptoms a diagnosis of solitary patella metastasis from a primary renal cell carcinoma was confirmed.
