Mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma is a rare variant of renal cell carcinoma, which has recently been described. It has a low malignant potential and is usually confined to the kidney. These are thought to be of the loop of Henle or distal nephron origin. We report a 65-year-old male who presented with flank pain, hematuria and a well-defined renal mass that was diagnosed as mucinous tubular and spindle cell tumor.
