We demonstrate preoperative diagnostical difficulties of renal masses in a patient with bilateral renal tumors. The procedure was made in two steps, primary radical nephrectomy was performed on the right side, and the confirmed the diagnosis of renal cell cancer. In the second step nephron sparing resection of the left kidney mass was performed. Although no one of the preoperative investigations showed malignant disease - sonography, CT-scan and angio-CT - the resected mass was oncocytoma on the left side. The patient was followed postoperatively, there is no sign of recurrence.
