Sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma (SRCC), an advanced and uncommon form of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), is more likely to manifest as a unilateral condition, especially in the right kidney, in older people. Here, we report a rare case of bilateral SRCC in a young female, aged 30 years - the youngest reported case of SRCC to the best of our knowledge. The patient complained of osphyalgia and intermittent fever which recurred after symptomatic treatment. Detailed examination, including histopathological analysis of biopsies, confirmed bilateral SRCC (RCC IV) with distant metastases. The patient denied receiving any form of the treatment, including surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy and died approximately 6 months after the initial symptoms.
