Renal lymphangiectasia is a benign, rare disorder of lymphatic system of the kidneys, characterized by dilatation of the perirenal lymphatics. This condition closely mimics other cystic lesions of the kidney such as polycystic kidney disease. The diagnosis can be made with classic radiological finding and other laboratory analysis. We report a 3-year-old male boy, a case of bilateral renal lymphangiectasia, diagnosed on ultrasonography and computed tomography typical imaging findings and the laboratory analysis of aspirated fluid.
