Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a very rare phenomenon in an ectopic kidney. We come across a 61-year-old gentleman with a history of 2 months of gross, painless haematuria and palpable pelvic mass on examination. CT scan showed 6.5cm X 5.1cm X 5.8cm mass in pelvic kidney with bilateral iliac vein invasion. With the help of intra-operative ultra-sound, tumour thrombus was extracted from both iliac veins with en mass removal of tumour. Patient was well intraoperatively as well as in postoperatively. We also presented an elegant imaging for the case.
