Multiple renal capillary hemangiomas in a patient with end-stage renal disease.


ABSTRACT: Renal capillary hemangiomas are rare and benign vascular tumors which are typically incidentally discovered on imaging. Surgical excision is often performed, as imaging appearance is similar to malignant lesions. Renal hemangiomas are typically solitary and unilateral. We present a rare case of multiple renal capillary hemangiomas in a patient with end-stage renal disease. Two hemangiomas were detected on imaging and 2 smaller hemangiomas were detected upon pathological evaluation, suggesting there may be a wider prevalence of smaller, radiographically-occult renal hemangiomas.
