CASTANO, Juan Carlos; VELEZ, Alejandro; RAUL FLOREZ, Férez  and  ALBERTO URIBE, Carlos. Renal lymphangioma. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.3, pp.256-258. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: To report a rare case of renal lymphangioma in a 30-year-old female consulting with left flank pain. METHODS: We perform a bibliographic review and present the clinical, radiological and pathologic features. RESULTS: The patient underwent surgical treatment: radical nephrectomy. Final pathology report showed a renal lymphangioma. CONCLUSIONS: Renal lymphangioma is a mesenchymal tumor of benign behavior which poses several diagnostic difficulties, both radiologically and histologically. This tumor may be confused with other renal tumors, including clear cell renal carcinoma.

Keywords : Lymphangioma; Kidney neoplasia.
