Abstract

Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is a quasi-neoplastic lesion that most commonly involves the lung, but has been shown to occur in nearly every tissue type. Renal involvement is very uncommon. We report the second case of IPT ever published presenting as bilateral infiltrating renal masses. Although most renal IPTs were treated with nephrectomy, our patient was managed successfully with conservative steroid treatment, thereby avoiding the alternative of dialysis or kidney transplantation.
