Abstract

A benign multilocular cyst is a benign, nondysplastic, neoplastic lesion that occurs most commonly either before the age of 4 years in males or after the age of 30 years in females. The only way to determine the diagnosis of a multilocular cystic lesion is by surgical excision. We report a case of 50 years old female with chronic left flank pain. After imaging like Ultrasonography, Intravenous pyelography, patient underwent nephrolithotomy with deroofing of the cyst under the impression of multiple renal calculi within a renal cyst. Histopathological examination showed that it was a multilocular cystic nephroma, a rare benign neoplasm of the kidney. This case report discusses the epidemiology, clinical presentation, radiological features, differential diagnosis and histopathology of this neoplasm.
