Multilocular cystic nephroma (MCN) is a rare tumor at the most benign end of the spectrum of the multilocular cystic neplasms of kidney. Nephrectomy is curative for MCN. In this case-report, we present a 16-month-old girl with a 10x15 cm multilocular cystic renal tumor extending into the renal pelvis and proximal ureter on the right side demonstrated on magnetic resonance imaging. Nephrectomy was performed. The pathology was completely consistent with MCN.
