We diagnosed oncocytoma in a thirteen-year-old girl. The girl was operated on. The tumor was removed but the parenchyma of the remaining part of the kidney that was not affected by the tumor was spared. A three-year-long observation period confirmed that the function of the spared kidney was correct.
