MALLEN MATEO, E. et al. Renal teratoma: case report and review of the literature. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2005, vol.29, n.5, pp.516-518. ISSN 0210-4806.

We report a case of intrarenal teratoma in a 39-year-old female patient. The clinical course after three years of follow-up has been satisfactory, finding the patient totally asymptomatic. Extragonadal teratoma occurs predominantly along the median line of the body.Intrarenal teratoma is extremely rare;however, it should be distinguished from other cystic lesions.

Keywords : Kidney diseases; Renal teratoma; Extragonadal neoplasia.
