  To the Editors: In reference to lymph node metastasis from an unknown tumor, we would like to report a first diagnosis of a renal cell carcinoma in a neck lymph node. We describe the case of a 42-year-old man presenting with lateral neck lymphadenopathy, fever, and weight loss; a neck lymph node was sent to our pathology unit with suspicion of a lymphoproliferative disorder. The patient had no history of previous neoplasia.
