Abstract

Renal lymphangiomatosis is a rare developmental malformation of the perirenal lymphatic system, and this can result in the development of cystic masses in the peri-pelvic or peri-renal areas. This is difficult to differentiate from other cystic renal disease on imaging studies. We present here a case of metachronous bilateral renal lymphangiomatosis that was falsely diagnosed as a simple renal cyst. A 47 year-old man was referred for a large amount of drainage after right renal cyst marsupialization. The abdominal computed tomography (CT) findings and fluid analysis were compatible with a lymphangiomatosis. After 6 month, he presented with flank pain on his left side and CT showed intracystic hemorrhage on the left renal lymphangiomatosis. Percutaneus drainage and conservative management were done.
