The Teaching Point

Although rare, inclusion of PRL in the differential of any potential renal neoplasm mimic is important to obtaining an early diagnosis, reduce adverse effects on patient management, and potentially improve overall prognosis. This is particularly important in cases of presumed benign entities such as a subcapsular hematoma where short interval follow-up imaging or other imaging modality considerations are warranted to exclude malignancy.

Abstract
Primary renal lymphoma (PRL) is a rare entity with a history of controversy regarding its existence. Lymphomatous involvement of the kidney is more commonly seen secondarily to spread from an adjacent lymphomatous mass, rather than arising primarily from the kidney. PRL can mimic other renal lesions such as renal cell carcinoma, renal abscess, and metastasis; therefore, an early diagnosis is crucial to guide treatment and properly assess prognosis. We present a rare case of a 77 year-old male who presented with hematuria and PRL mimicking a subcapsular hematoma.
