Multilocular cystic renal neoplasm of low malignant potential

Multilocular cystic renal neoplasm of low malignant potential  is a low-grade adult renal tumor composed entirely of numerous cysts. The entity was previously known as multilocular cystic renal cell carcinoma, which usually had clear cell morphology, but was redefined in the 2016 WHO classification due to no recurrence or metastasis in patients with these tumors 1.

Differential diagnosis

Consider other cystic renal neoplasms in adults, primarily mixed epithelial and stromal tumor and the related cystic nephroma.
