A 42 year male patient with complaints of dull abdominal pain and hematuria for 01 year was referred by Nephrologist for abdominal ultrasound (USG). USG demonstrated echogenic kidneys, perinephric and renal sinus cystic fluid collections bilaterally with minimal ascites and mild right sided pleural effusion. The USG findings were confirmed by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan and were characteristic of renal lymphangiectasia. Awareness regarding renal lymphangiectasia will result in early diagnosis and management and decreased morbidity.
