Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors are rare in the genitourinary organs, with few reports of occurrence in the kidney. We describe a patient with a renal malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, discovered after excision of a malignant peripheral nerve sheath scalp lesion, with additional masses in the lung and shoulder on metastatic evaluation. This patient underwent neoadjuvant intravenous doxorubicin therapy, followed by surgical resection of the scalp, lung and shoulder lesions in addition to a radical nephrectomy.
