Abstract

Cystic nephroma is a rare benign cystic renal tumor, which has been only recently recognized as an exclusively adult histological entity. We present a case of cystic nephroma, together with clinical, radiological, histopathological and immunohistochemical findings. The histopathological differential diagnosis and immunohistochemical features that are potentially useful for refining this tumor are discussed.
