Bilateral renal cell carcinoma with tumor thrombus extension into the renal vein and/or inferior vena cava - clinical stage T3a+ - is rare. The majority of these cases arise due to a genetic predisposition. We present a case report of a 47-year-old male with bilateral, synchronous renal cell carcinoma with bilateral renal vein and inferior vena cava tumor thrombi with no identifiable familial predisposition.
