CASE 147 (May 2018)

Clinical information

A 52-year-old woman, with no pathological personal history, is evaluated by presenting pain in the flank and persistent microhematuria, 2 months of evolution. Image studies showed a mass of 2 cm in diameter in the renal hilum, adjacent to the main artery and vein and in contact with the wall of the pelvis.

Given the difficulties for a possible complete resection of the lesion without injuring the hilum, a nephrectomy was decided.

Observe the images. (Case received in our service as interconsultation, we do not have macroscopic images of the specimen)..
