Renal lymphatic abnormalities are rare, and the understanding of pathophysiology involving renal lymphatics is limited. Symptoms can include hypertension, hematuria, proteinuria, chyluria, and abdominal and lumbar pain. Imaging techniques specific to the renal lymphatics have not been clarified. We review the intrahospital imaging evaluation/workup and clinical course of a 6-year-old male who presented to our institution with a large perirenal cyst. His presentation presented a diagnostic and management challenge. The cyst was determined to be lymphatic in origin and required multiple interventional radiology and surgical procedures for management.
