TORRES ARANDA, José; RODRIGUEZ PINO, Martha  and  DIAZ YANES, Nery. Hyperdense Renal Cyst. A Case Report. Medisur [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.6, pp.779-784. ISSN 1727-897X.

Increased radiological tests have facilitated the discovery of kidney cysts, which sometimes do not meet clear criteria for benignity or malignancy. Among these lesions, the hyperdense cysts pose a challenge to all those responsible for their diagnosis and treatment. For such reasons we decided to present the case of a 23-year-old female patient with a history of sickle cell anemia, who attended the emergency department of the Dr. Gustavo Aldereguía Lima University General Hospital due to colic-like pain in the left lumbar region unresponsive to analgesics. She was diagnosed with category II renal cyst according to Bosniak classification using computed tomography with and without intravenous contrast.
