Abstract

Lymphoproliferative and hematologic disorders of the kidney may present with focal or diffuse renal parenchymal involvement in clinical practice. Radiologic findings of lymphoproliferative and hematologic disorders of the kidney may mimick primary neoplastic and inflammatory disorders of the kidney. All cross-sectional imaging modalities including ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging may be used in the diagnosis of these diseases. Percutaneous biopsy may be used in problematic cases for definitive diagnosis.
