Routine ultrasonography revealed a large, complex renal mass in a 39-year-old pregnant woman. An MRI confirmed a 14.5 x 12 x 17 cm complex renal mass, and laparoscopic nephrectomy was chosen as the management option. During the mid-second trimester, a right laparoscopic nephrectomy was performed. The pathology report noted clear-cell carcinoma with negative margins. The child, delivered without incident, is now more than 2 years old and is developmentally normal. A review of laparoscopy in pregnancy is also presented.
