The occurrence of renal cell carcinoma in adult-dominant polycystickidney disease (AD-PKD) is rare. We report a case of papillary carcinoma associated with AD-PKD presenting with loin mass, pain, fever and persistent haematuria. CT-scan of the abdomen and CT-guided Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (FNAB) of the mass enabled us to diagnose the condition preoperatively and institute proper treatmen. The diagnosis of this rare and difficult condition is reviewed and discussed.
