A single-crystal ingot of PrSn3 was grown by the Czochralski pulling method in an induction furnace under helium gas atmosphere of 3.6 kg/cm2. The negative magnetoresistance and the mass enhancement of the conduction electron of PrSn3 were determined by measuring the electrical resistivity, magnetoresistance and the de Haas-van Alphen effect. The Kondo effect was confirmed from a negative magnetoresistance and the presence of heavy electrons with the cyclotron effective mass m*c = 7.43-9.3 m0.
