Dromedary hump

Case contributed by Dr James Shin

Focal bulge in the mid-pole of the kidney. It can be mistaken for a renal mass, but on closer inspection, it mimics the renal cortex in every respect.

Case Discussion

Dromedary hump is named after the camel of the same name.  The focal bulge in the renal cortex, albeit striking in appearance, is just a focal bulge of normal cortex. It is a variant not uncommonly identified.
