Multilocular cystic renal cell carcinoma (MCRCC) is a rare adult cystic tumor of the kidney and is considered as a distinct type of clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Most patients are asymptomatic and they are detected incidentally. MCRCC is consistently low nuclear grade and has an excellent prognosis. Concern still persists regarding its true malignant potential. Although surgical resection is curative, lymph node metastasis has been reported recently. There are very few reports on large series of cases and limited available follow-up. We report a case of MCRCC in a 60-year-old male patient who presented with abdominal distention. Careful follow-up is essential in these patients for better prognosis.
