Abstract :

Multicystic nephroma is a relatively rare, non-genetic, unilateral, lesion of the kidney which has a bimodal distribution. The nonspecific clinical findings and the poor contribution of imaging examinations make the preoperative diagnosis a diagnostic dilemma and difficult to differentiate from other cystic renal neoplasia. We report a case of cystic nephroma in a 40 year old female who presented with a right sided abdominal lump and pain abdomen since 6 months. After a series of examinations including abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography, she underwent right partial nephrectomy and diagnosis was confirmed on histopathology. Final diagnosis can be only established by the histopathological examination of the completely excised tumour in the pathology laboratory.
