Collecting duct carcinoma (CDC) is an extremely rare subtype of renal epithelial neoplasm arising from the distal segment of the collecting ducts of Bellini in the renal medulla. It accounts for <1% of all renal cell carcinoma cases. It has been reported to have a tendency toward early dissemination. This aggressive malignancy is difficult to be diagnosed despite its characteristic histological and immunohistochemical findings. We report a case of a CDC with sarcomatoid differentiation in a 64-year-old female who presented with a right renal mass and underwent right radical nephrectomy.
