Cystic nephroma is a rare renal neoplasm which is usually benign histologically. We report a case of a 42-year-old woman with cystic nephroma arising from the lower pole of the right kidney with microscopic foci of sarcomatous stroma. Preoperative sonogram and CT scan were performed. Pathologic study revealed a cystic nephroma with foci of primitive, mesenchymal, undifferentiated, embryonal type sarcoma.
