An exophytic renal mass was diagnosed preoperatively as renal cell carcinoma by ultrasoud, computerized tomography and arteriography. Intraoperative recognition of the proper diagnosis of leiomyoma of the renal capsule permitted renal-sparing excision. Renal capsular leiomyoma should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of an apparent exophytic renal cell carcinoma.
