Abstract

Multilocular cystic renal cell carcinoma (MCRCC), which exhibits low‑stage and low‑grade characteristics, is a special type of RCC. MCRCC is extremely rare and generally develops at ages >50 years. We herein report a case of MCRCC in a 28‑year‑old man, which, to the best of our knowledge, is the youngest case reported worldwide to date. The patient presented with irritative bladder symptoms for 1 year. Dynamic enhanced computed tomography (CT) imaging revealed a mass with inhomogeneous enhancement in the left kidney, with a rich blood supply. B‑ultrasonography also revealed a renal protruding mass. As the mass was highly suspicious to be a malignant tumor, laparoscopic radical nephrectomy was performed and MCRCC was definitively diagnosed by pathological examination. The patient has been regularly followed up for 6 months, without complications or disease recurrence.
