A large exophytic mass is seen in the lower pole of the left kidney, causing a mass effect on the collecting system. A few tiny calcified foci are noted within the mass. After IV contrast media administration, it enhances heterogeneously because of necrotic components.
A few small, simple cortical cysts are seen in the right kidney.
Uterus and ovaries are not seen due to prior resection.
The patient underwent a left nephrectomy, and histopathology evaluation confirmed renal cell carcinoma (clear cell type).
