Abstract

Cystic lesions of the kidney are detected with steadily increasing frequency. Although most are benign, cause the patient no trouble and have significance only in the differential diagnosis of renal carcinoma, it must be accepted that about four per cent of renal carcinomas are cystic. Cystic renal tumours may not be possible to differentiate from benign cysts with modern radiological methods such as ultrasonography and computed tomography. The percutaneous puncture of the cystic lesion will therefore remain as an important technique in the differentiation of a benign cyst from a cystic renal tumour.
