Abstract

Abstract The diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma was established by computed tomography-guided aspiration in two small solid lesions occurring in end-stage kidneys. This represents a safe means of providing more specific information about the various lesions that frequently develop in chronic hemodialysis patients: complex cysts, adenoma, and renal cell carcinoma. The proposed conservative approach of simple observation of these lesions may be altered if a precise diagnosis is obtained. Computed tomography is considered the most reliable imaging modality for evaluation and guided aspiration.
