Ten patients with renal lymphoma studied by selective angiography are reported. Seven patients had unilateral and 3 had bilateral involvement. A localized mass was seen in 6 patients and diffuse infiltration in 3. In 1 patient with bilateral nodular involvement, the angiographic findings resembled those of adult-type polycystic kidney disease. In all cases, renal lymphoma was suspected angiographically. The findings included hypovascular mass or masses with fine neovascularity, smooth and diffuse arterial encasement, and faint tumor staining.
