Juxtaglomerular cell tumor (JGCT) is a rare pathologically benign renal neoplasm mostly reported as localized disease, which can secrete renin and induce hypertension, hypokalemia, and hyperaldosteronism. In this report, a young male was diagnosed with JGCT with lung metastases. In general, the diagnosis of JGCT is made by a pathological examination, and the standard treatment of localized disease is to resect the tumor completely. However, there is currently no standard treatment for metastatic or unresectable JGCT, and chemotherapy plays a debatable role.
