Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for approximately 3% of adult malignancies and 90-95% of kidney neoplasms. Renal cell carcinoma with leiomyomatous stroma (RCCLS) is an extremely rare histopathological entity based on available literature data. Herein, we report a 31-year-old male with incidentally detected synchronous bilateral renal masses who was eventually found to harbor RCCLS after being operated sequentially via nephron-sparing surgery.
