Bilateral multifocal renal oncocytomas are very rare disorders with only 6 previously reported cases in the world literature, of which only 3 have had pathologic confirmation. We present the first reported case of diffuse, bilateral, multifocal renal oncocytomatosis in a patient with end-stage renal disease requiring hemodialysis. Our patient was found to have hundreds of nodular tumors in both kidneys on exploration, representing the second such reported finding.
