Renal carcinoma cell is responsible for 3–4% of all neoplasms and 80–85% of malignant tumors of the renal cortex. This article reports the case of a 29-year-old patient, previously healthy, asymptomatic, with a single left renal lesion, solid, peri-hilar, 3 cm in diameter and initially accidentally seen as a hyperechoic mass on a routine examination. A contrast tomography (CT) with solid left renal lesion and low contrast enhancement was observed. Due to the difficulty of understanding the possible etiology of this tumor, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was required, showing an expansive formation, well defined, heterogeneous, endophytic contour, between the middle and upper third, intimate contact with the renal sinus, with no apparent vascular invasion Measuring approximately 3.4 cm and poor in intra-cellular fat.Patient was resistant to surgical treatment and was then referred for percutaneous biopsy. The result revealed a neoplasm with macro and microfollicular pattern, suggestive of the rare entity described as “thyroid-like follicular carcinoma of the kidney"...
