MCRCC is also known as multilocular clear cell RCC and multicystic clear cell carcinoma.1 It is important to differentiate this entity from clear cell RCC since it is associated with a good prognosis.1  Literature reports a very low incidence of 1-2% of MCRCC among renal neoplasms.2  Men are more commonly affected than women.2 There is a male: female preponderance  of 3:1.1.3  All patients have been adults (20 to 76 years, mean age 51 years).1,3

The first such reported case was in 1957 by Robinson.2

We report a case of 65 year old male who presented with abdominal lump and pain, underwent nephrectomy.
