Lymphoblastic lymphoma (LBL) is a highly malignant form of lymphoma with rapid progression and high mortality. According to the World Health Organization immunophenotype, it is classified into T‑lymphoblastic lymphoma (T‑LBL) and B‑lymphoblastic lymphoma (B‑LBL). B‑LBL often involves lymph nodes and extranodal locations, such as the skin, bones, and soft tissues. However, renal damage as an initial symptom is very rare in B‑LBL. The present study presented a rare case of renal involvement in a 30‑year‑old male patient with B‑LBL presenting with acute renal failure with bilateral renal enlargement. Renal involvement is rare in B‑LBL, and nephrologists should improve the understanding of this disease.
