Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare subtype of B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with an annual incidence of 5%, common in men with a median age of 60–70 years. Renal involvement is seen in about 0.7% of the extranodal lymphomas. The bilateral presentation is seen in 10%–20% of cases. There have been many case reports of MCL with renal involvement; however, primary renal involvement by MCL is extremely rare. We hereby describe the 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomographic findings in primary MCL involving the bilateral kidneys.
