Abstract

Kimura disease (KD) is a rare, benign, chronic inflammatory disorder most often found in young Asian males that can simulate a neoplasm. We report a case of renal cell carcinoma and KD within the same kidney. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of KD involving the kidney confirmed pathologically, as well as the first association of KD with renal cell carcinoma.
