Abstract

Primary renal sarcoma is extremely rare and account for less than 1% of malignant renal tumors. We report a 24-year-old female with huge undifferentiated sarcoma arising from renal parenchyma of left kidney. The tumor was confined in the renal cortex without disruption of the renal capsule, which was difficult to be differentiated from renal cell carcinoma due to its unusual location. We present the imaging and histopathological findings of this rare case, and review the literatures.
