Introduction: Primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) of kidney is a rare clinical condition. We report a young girl with PNET of kidney. Case Presentation: A 14-year-old female presented with chronic flank pain. Imaging studies revealed a huge renal mass with left renal vein thrombosis. Histopathological findings were consistent with PNET, which was later confirmed by immunohistochemistry and she received adjuvant chemotherapy. Conclusions: PNET is a rare clinical condition in urology and it should be considered in young patients with a renal mass, especially when it is huge. Treatment plan includes radical nephrectomy along with neoadjuvant chemotherapy. © 2017, Cancer Research Center (CRC), Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences.
