ABSTRACT
We present a 64-year-old patient suffering from extranodal malignant lymphoma. The patient was admitted to the County Hospital Urology Ward with suspicion of the left kidney tumor. As part of pre-operational diagnosis, ultrasonographic examination and computed tomography of kidneys were conducted. The results confirmed the initial diagnosis. After undergoing radical surgical treatment, the patient is currently under the care of hematology ward of oncology centre.

Figure 0001: Left kidney tumor in CT exam.

Mentions: Patient aged 64 was admitted to the county hospital urology ward in September 2010 and diagnosed with tumor of the left kidney. Ultrasonographic exam revealed the structure with a diameter of 45 mm in the central field of the left kidney. No abnormality was found on urography. CT showed a solid focal lesion of the left kidney (30 x 40 x 32 mm) located below the renal stalk and covering the renal pelvis and the paranephric section of the left ureter, apart from that no changes were observed (Figure 1). Radiological image of the chest did not reveal any pathological changes. In order to make the results of pre–operational diagnosis even more detailed and reliable, left–sided ureterorenoscopy was conducted and a urine sample was taken for cytology to exclude epithelial nature of the tumor. After undergoing the above–mentioned test, the patient was qualified for transperitoneal radical nephrectomy. With general anesthesia applied, the left kidney was removed through an incision below the left costal margin. During the operation, a significant peripheral infiltration was discovered which hindered access to the renal stalk of the left kidney. There were no signs of enlarged lymph nodes along large vessels. The post–operative course passed without complications and the patient was discharged in good general condition 8 days after the surgery.
