Abstract

Intrarenal splenic tissue (splenorenal heterotopia) is a rare condition. Simultaneous existence of splenorenal heterotopia and extramedullary hematopoiesis in a same patient can present as a mass of kidney. We present an interesting case of splenorenal heterotopia with extramedullary hematopoiesis in a thalassemic child simulating as a renal neoplasm. This is the first reported case in the right kidney.
