Abstract

Renal oncocytoma is an uncommon benign renal neoplasm of unknown etiology. Bilateral, multicentric renal oncocytomas are rare and diffuse renal oncocytomas are even rarer. We report a patient with incidentally detected marked bilateral nephromegaly due to innumerable oncocytomas. The term "oncocytomatosis" should be strictly applied to cases in which oncocytomas diffusely infiltrate the kidneys.
