Metanephreic Adenoma of the Kidney

ABSTRACT

Metanephric adenoma is a rare benign tumor of the kidney. Macroscopically, the cut surface of the tumor shows a well-circumscribed mass of grey to yellow color. Here we have presented our experience with 2 cases of metanephric adenoma. Although it is very difficult to differentiate it from malignancy by clinical or radiological findings, the differentiation is mainly done by histopathology and immunohistochemistry. Complete surgical removal or polar nephrectomy is the proper treatment in almost all cases.

Postangioplasty Infrequent Complication: A Page Kidney Case Report

ABSTRACT

Page kidney phenomenon (PK) is hypereninemic hypertension triggered by any compressive mechanism on the kidney. Since it was first described in human beings in 1955, multiple causes of extrinsic compression of the renal parenchyma have been reported. However, to our knowledge, no cases related to arteriography with angioplasty as the cause of PK in a transplanted kidney has been reported. Clinical suspicion is always essential in making an accurate diagnosis. Treatment should be individualized. Patients who suffer PK should be monitored due to the possibility of chronic hypertension.
