ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Renal Cell Carcinoma.

History: History of right upper quadrant pain for the past two weeks.

Findings: Exophytic mass off inferior pole of left kidney. The solid, heterogenous mass measures 2.7 cm in diameter and disturbs the renal contour. The remainder of the left and right kidneys is normal. No renal vein or inferior vena cava thromboses are present. There is no adenopathy.

Ddx: 1. Renal Cell Carcinoma 2. Renal metastasis 3. Renal adenoma 4. Oncocytoma 5. Renal lymphoma 6. Renal angiomyolipoma 7. Acute focal pyelonephritis

Dxhow: Although imaging can suggest differentiation between several benign and malignant renal masses, no imaging features are pathognomonic for malignancy. The patient was therefore referred to urology for management of this incidental renal mass. Tissue diagnosis was obtained during partial nephrectomy.

Exam: No significant physical exam and laboratory findings.

No MeSH data available.
