Renal cell carcinoma is a cancer thought to originate from renal epithelial cells. Commonly seen in patients older than 60 years of age, renal cell carcinoma presents as rare pathological entity seen in urological cancers among the pediatric population. A 17-year-old female patient presented with complaints of intermittency, dysuria, and gross hematuria. Radiological imaging was in favor of a left renal mass. Under general anesthesia, the left kidney was completely laparoscopically resected and sent to pathology, which along with correlating the age group of the patient and the morphology on pathological analysis, was suggestive of microphthalmia family translocation renal cell carcinoma.
