LARA, Concepción; PORRAS, Virginia; JURADO, Pilar  and  ARREDONDO, Francisco. Metanephric adenoma: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.9, pp.1122-1124. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Metanephric adenoma is an unfrequent renal neoplasm, usually asymptomatic. Differential diagnosis with other renal tumors has to be performed. Methods/results: We report the case of a 67 years old woman with a metanephric adenoma. Conclusions: Metanephric tumors comprise a pathologic spectrum of lesions. At one end of the pathologic spectrum are the metanephric adenomas. These tumors usually behave in a benign fashion. It is important to differentiate metanephric adenoma from clinically aggressive renal tumors.

Keywords : Kidney; Metanephric adenoma.
