Abstract

Liesegang rings are uncommon pathological findings which may cause diagnostic dilemmas for pathologists. Awareness of their appearance is important to avoid over diagnosis of parasitic infection, algal contamination and psammoma bodies. Liesegang rings are benign, lamellar structures with radial striations and a central amorphous core. They are found in a variety of tissues and fluids in both an intra- and extra-cellular sites. We present here a case of a cystic renal lesion containing Liesegang rings mimicking a renal cell carcinoma.
