Neoplastic diseases affecting the urinary organs are common, and diagnosis by imaging is usually straightforward. However, infectious/inflammatory processes also commonly affect these organs and can be mistaken for a neoplasm. Familiarity with these potential mimickers and awareness of their imaging presentations are key for correct diagnosis. We present the imaging findings of non-neoplastic infectious/inflammatory diseases that can mimic a neoplastic process.
