Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is one of the best‑known genetic diseases. Almost half of the patients with ADPKD will develop end‑stage renal disease, and the majority of patients are treated with renal transplantation. The current study presents a case that developed papillary renal cell carcinoma (PRCC) in the native right kidney 10 years after renal transplantation. PRCC is a not common malignant tumour entity (18.5% of all cases of renal cell carcinoma) compared with common clear cell renal carcinoma (65‑70% of all cases of RCC).
