Dr. Vinayak V Kshirsagar, Dr Milind Chakane, Dr Prasanna Yavalkar

Abstract :

The kidney is one of the most common sites for cyst formation in the body. The spectrum of renal cysts is wide and complex, from genetic to neoplastic in etiology, bimodal distribution in age & sex. Cystic nephroma is a rare benign neoplasm of the kidney with excellent prognosis after nephrectomy. Preoperative diagnosis of cystic nephroma is clinically and radiological difficult from other cystic renal malignancies. It is a rare benign lesion of the kidney with very few reported cases in the world literature. Even with improved precision in radiological imaging, the final diagnosis is only possible by histopathological examination of the resected specimen. This is a case report of a 30 year old female patient who presented with an incidental finding of complex multilocular renal mass. She underwent nephrectomy, and the histological findings were consistent with cystic nephroma.
