We report a very rare case of Bellini duct carcinoma originating from the collecting tubules of the kidney. A left renal tumor was detected during a health examination and radical nephrectomy was performed. Histological examination showed papillary adenocarcinoma. By means of immunohistochemical methods, we felt that the tumor was a renal carcinoma of Bellini duct origin.
