Renal metastasis of osteosarcoma is a rare entity, with paucity of reported cases in the literature. We report a case of a 20-year-old gentleman who was diagnosed with right distal femur osteosarcoma, complicated with multiple pulmonary recurrences. At two-year-and-a-half interval post-treatment completion, the patient developed right flank pain and frank haematuria. Contrasted abdominal computed tomography revealed a right renal mass with calcification and perinephric haematoma. A right radical nephrectomy was undertaken and histopathological examination showed metastatic condroblastic osteosarcoma. A literature review on renal metastasis secondary to osteosarcoma was performed and we present a report and discussion of these cases. © 2022
