Hemangiomas are benign vascular tumors of childhood and they usually tend to be located in the upper parts of the body (head and neck). However, renal hemangiomas are very rare and usually occur to be small (1-2 cm) in size. Here, we report an adolescent girl with a giant renal hemangioma of 15 cm diameter. (C) 2018 Elsevier Inc.
