Intrarenal splenosis is very rare and its management is not well established. We present a patient in whom an enhancing left renal mass was incidentally detected on a Computerized tomographic (CT) scan, concerning for renal cell carcinoma. However, the lesion was determined to represent intrarenal splenosis, confirmed by Technetium-99m (99mTc) sulfur colloid scan and percutaneous biopsy, which revealed splenic tissue. This multimodal approach to diagnosis of an unusual condition spared the patient an invasive procedure.
