Cystic nephroma treated with nephron-sparing technique: A case report.

Mol Clin Oncol 2021 Jun 23;14(6):109. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Urology, Lourdes Clinic, I-80040 Massa di Somma, Italy.

Multilocular cystic nephroma is a rare benign kidney tumor, which is typically characterized by a unilateral, multicystic renal mass without solid elements. Cystic nephroma has a bimodal distribution and two-thirds of tumors involve children aged between 3 months and 2 years, with male predominance; a second peak affects the age group >30 years old, in which females are predominantly affected. The incidence rate for this rare tumor in patients aged 5-30 years is only 5%. Read More

Renal epithelial and stromal tumor with a multiple cystic lesion localized in the upper portion of the right kidney.

CEN Case Rep 2021 05 3;10(2):230-235. Epub 2020 Nov 3.

Nephrology Center and Department of Rheumatology, Toranomon Hospital Kajigaya, 1C-1, Takatsu, Kawasaki, Kanagawa, 212-0015, Japan.

A 60-year-old Japanese woman was admitted because of the polycystic mass with right flank pain localized in the upper portion of the right kidney. Right nephrectomy was performed because the mass lesion had continuously increased in size over the past 10 years. A surgical specimen showed histology consistent with a mixed epithelial and stromal tumor, which is closely related to multilocular cystic nephroma, and was diagnosed by a defined capsule between the cystic mass lesion and normal renal tissue by CT and MRI, and histology.

Contemporary update on imaging of cystic renal masses with histopathological correlation and emphasis on patient management.

Clin Radiol 2019 02 9;74(2):83-94. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Department of Medical Imaging, The Ottawa Hospital, University of Ottawa, 501 Smyth Road, Ottawa, ON K1H 8L6, Canada. Electronic address:

This article presents an updated review of cystic renal mass imaging. Most cystic renal masses encountered incidentally are benign and can be diagnosed confidently on imaging and require no follow-up. Hyperattenuating masses discovered at unenhanced or single-phase enhanced computed tomography (CT) measuring between 20-70 HU are indeterminate and can be further investigated first by using ultrasound and, then with multi-phase CT or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); as the majority represent haemorrhagic/proteinaceous cysts (HPCs).

Tubulocystic renal cell carcinoma: a review of literature focused on radiological findings for differential diagnosis.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2018 07;43(7):1540-1545

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Institute of Biomedical and Health Sciences, Hiroshima University, 1-2-3 Kasumi, Minami-ku, Hiroshima, 7340037, Japan.

Tubulocystic renal cell carcinoma (TC-RCC) has been classified as an independent subtype according to the 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) classification. It is a rare subtype that predominantly affects men. Although few in number, radiological imaging reports have suggested that TC-RCC is characterized by multilocular cystic lesions, which are categorized as the Bosniak classification II-IV, with signature pathological characteristics comprising numerous small cysts or a tubular structure.

A Case Report of Largest Documented Multilocular Cystic Nephroma Removed by Thoracoabdominal Approach.

J Clin Diagn Res 2017 Jul 1;11(7):PD10-PD12. Epub 2017 Jul 1.

Lecturer, Department of Urology, LTMGH and LTMMC, Sion, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Large renal tumours are not uncommon in developing countries. Enhancing renal tumours are considered to be malignant unless proved otherwise and radical surgical resection remains the mainstay of treatment of such tumours. A giant renal tumour, especially on right side, poses a big challenge for the operating team and requires a thoracoabdominal approach for successful excision. Read More

Retrospective evaluation of ultrasound-indeterminate renal multilocular cystic masses by using neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio and computed tomography.

Urol Oncol 2017 01 23;35(1):35.e7-35.e14. Epub 2016 Sep 23.

Department of Urology, State Key Laboratory of Kidney Diseases, Chinese PLA General Hospital, PLA Medical School, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Purpose: To evaluate the clinical usefulness of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in differentiating the ultrasound-indeterminate renal multilocular cystic masses (RMCM) in comparison with computed tomography (CT) and whether NLR has additional benefits to CT on sensitivity of detecting the malignant.

Materials And Methods: Overall, 93 patients who underwent normal ultrasound with a conclusion of indeterminate RMCM were examined by NLR and CT within 30 days before surgery or follow-up from March to September 2014 at PLA General Hospital and enrolled in this retrospective study. Logistic regression model was performed to find independent predictors for differentiating true nature of RMCM; differences in the validity parameters and diagnostic power of CT, NLR, and their combination were compared using McNemar tests and AUC model, respectively.

Pleuropulmonary Blastoma: Evolution of an Entity as an Entry into a Familial Tumor Predisposition Syndrome.

Pediatr Dev Pathol 2015 Nov-Dec;18(6):504-11. Epub 2015 Dec 23.

1 International Pleuropulmonary Blastoma Registry, Children's Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN 55404, USA.

Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is the most common primary malignant neoplasm of the lung in children. Like other solid dysontogenic neoplasms, this tumor typically presents before 7 years of age. The earliest manifestation is the presence of a lung cyst(s), which is usually recognized in the first year of life and is difficult to differentiate on the basis of imaging studies from non-neoplastic cysts of early childhood.

Multilocular Cystic Nephroma: A Systematic Literature Review of the Radiologic and Clinical Findings.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2015 Dec;205(6):1188-93

1 All authors: Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging, Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá University Hospital, Universidad de Los Andes, Cra. 7b #123-90, Bogotá 220246, Colombia.

Objective: The objective of our study was to systematically summarize the published evidence of demographic, clinical, diagnostic imaging, and therapeutic characteristics of patients with multilocular cystic nephroma (MLCN).

Conclusion: Cross-sectional imaging evaluation is important for suggesting the diagnosis of MLCN but has several limitations. The number of radical nephrectomies reported for MLCN encourages discussion concerning the utility of percutaneous presurgical biopsy and frozen-section intraoperative biopsy as a more conservative diagnostic approach.

Prospective evaluation of CT indeterminate renal masses using US and contrast-enhanced ultrasound.

Abdom Imaging 2015 Mar;40(3):542-51

Radiology Department, Hospital Clinic, Villarroel 170, 08036, Barcelona, Spain,

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of Ultrasound (US) and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in the characterization of renal nodules indeterminate on CT by identifying benign cystic lesions not requiring further examination.

Methods: 72 patients with 83 indeterminate renal nodules on CT underwent baseline US and CEUS that classified lesions as benign (Bosniak I, II or IIF cysts) or potentially malignant (Bosniak III or IV cysts, solid nodules). The accuracy of US and CEUS in the differentiation between benign cysts and potentially malignant nodules was analyzed and compared with the final diagnosis obtained by histology or follow-up of at least 23 months with CEUS ± a conclusive CT/MR study.
