We experienced a case of gastric squamous cell carcinoma, which recurred in the left kidney 5 years and 4 months after curative resection. A 64-year-old man underwent total gastrectomy with D2 lymph node dissection and splenectomy for Type 2 advanced gastric cancer. The histological examination showed the squamous cell carcinoma of stomach. The final stage was T3N0P0H0M0, fStage II. After 5 years and 4 months, the left renal tumor appeared and laparoscopic nephrectomy was performed. The histological findings showed the metastatic renal cancer from stomach squamous cell carcinoma. The gastric squamous cell carcinoma is very rare and the frequency in all gastric cancer has been reported 0.09%. Furthermore, this is the first report of the metastasis to the kidney of the gastric squamous cell carcinoma.
