    A case of renal oncocytoma is reported. A 79-year-old man was referred to our clinic because of a right renal mass pointed out by ultrasonography during a health check up. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography, and dynamic MRI suggested a right renal cell carcinoma. Rt. total nephrectomy was performed. A pathological diagnosis of renal oncocytoma was made. Renal oncocytoma is a rare benign renal tumor. We herein discuss 87 cases of renal oncocytoma which have been reported in Japan.
